Why Are Childhood Vaccinations Important?
At Every Child Pediatrics, we strongly believe in the benefits of routine childhood vaccinations, and our policy is to recommend the full vaccine schedule as encouraged by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We know that vaccines have successfully decreased rates of, and have sometimes eliminated, vaccine preventable diseases.
We want to help you make the best decision for your child. Knowing that there is a lot of misinformation on the internet, we recommend the websites below for vaccine information. We welcome you to ask questions and have dialogue with your child’s pediatric provider around immunizations.
