Vaccines

Prevention of disease is the best approach for the least cost; vaccines are used to immunize against several diseases.  Every year, vaccines prevent countless serious illnesses and thousands of deaths from measles, mumps, polio, diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, and bacterial meningitis.

Vaccines, like most medicines, can cause side effects.  These are usually mild and brief.  We follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics with our schedule of administration.  We believe the benefit of being protected against the above diseases greatly outweighs the risk of the very rare serious side effects.

If you have questions, please ask your doctor.
