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.
Here are some additional web sites that offer accurate medical information about immunizations:
- Center for Disease Control information updates
- What would happen if we stopped vaccinating?
- American Academy of Pediatrics information for parents
- National Immunization Info. Network - Great list of vaccines and the diseases they prevent
- We also recommend an annual flu vaccine for children over 6 months and for
parents of young children.
Many childhood illnesses have diminished over the last twenty years as a result of widespread expansion of the immunization program. Please contact our office with concerns and questions you may have regarding vaccinations.
