Vaccination Policy Statement

The effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives has been proven beyond any doubt.  For this reason, all children and young adults should receive the vaccines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

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/caregivers.  The recommended vaccines and their schedules are the result of years of scientific study. Because we are committed to protecting the health of your children through vaccination, we require all of our patients to be vaccinated.

As medical professionals and your trusted partners in the care of your children, we feel strongly that vaccinating on schedule with currently available vaccines is the right thing to do for all children and young adults. By not vaccinating, you are putting your child and other children at unnecessary risk for life-threatening illness and disability, and even death. Thank you for your time in reading this policy.  Please feel free to discuss any questions or concerns you may have with any of the providers.

If you should decide not to vaccinate your child despite all our efforts, we request that you find another health care provider who shares your views.

 

 

Thank you,

Gramercy Pediatrics
