Immunization Information

We follow the immunization guidelines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and CDC for all children. Vaccines are safe and effective for preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off potentially devastating infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.

A handy summary of those vaccines and the diseases they protect against can be found here:
