We firmly believe in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives.

We firmly believe in the safety of our vaccines.

We firmly believe that all children and young adults should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

We firmly believe that when you don’t vaccinate, you take a significant risk with your child’s health and the health of others around them.

Because we are committed to protecting the health of your children through vaccination, we require all of our patients to be vaccinated. Please be advised that delaying or “breaking up the vaccines” to give one or two at a time over two or more visits goes against expert recommendations. This can put your child at risk for serious illness and goes against our medical advice as providers at Baby and Child Associates.

We, the providers of Baby and Child Associates, acknowledge and honor your rights as parents/guardians to make any and all healthcare decisions for your child. We will not force you to vaccinate your child against your wishes.

After you have been provided with the information about the recommended vaccines for your child, if you choose to refuse vaccination we will require that you provide our office with an exemption waiver from the Health Department in the state of your residence.

If you cannot comply with this policy, we respectfully ask that you find a healthcare provider more apt to meet your preferences. We do not have a list of providers who allow alternative immunization schedules or immunization refusals. Further, we do not recommend any provider who does so.

We look forward to providing the best care possible to your family.

We will be offering seasonal flu vaccines for children starting at age 6 months, beginning in October. Please call for an appointment.
