Immunizations

A Parent’s Guide
Learn how you can be sure your child is protected

Vaccinating children is one of the most important things we do as pediatricians, helping to make sure each generation is healthier than ever before. Polio, pertussis (whooping cough), haemophilus influenza meningitis, pnuemoccocal meningitis, measles, mumps, and chicken pox are just a few of the very serious or deadly diseases once common, that we now almost never see because of protection from vaccines.

We feel strongly about the importance of vaccines and want you to have as much information as needed for you to feel comfortable about vaccinating your child.

Our vaccine policy describes our practice philosophy in more detail.

Here are some additional web sites that offer accurate medical information about immunizations:
