Why We Vaccinate

Our providers believe in the effectiveness and safety of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives.

  • All children and young adults should receive all the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
  • Based on all available literature, evidence and current studies, vaccines do not cause autism or other developmental disabilities.
  • Vaccinating children and young adults may be the single most important health promoting intervention we perform as health care providers, and that you can perform as parents.  The recommended vaccines and their schedule given are the result of years of scientific study and data gathering on millions of children by thousands of our brightest scientists and physicians.

These things being said, we realize that there has always been and will always be controversy surrounding vaccination.  We urge our parents to obtain information from reputable, scientific sources when deliberating over the decision to vaccinate.  A few resources that may be helpful are highlighted below.
