Patient Add-on Policy:
Records Release Policy:
-We believe in the safety of vaccines.
-We believe that all children and young adults should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
-We believe, based on all available literature, evidence, and current studies, that vaccines, including thimerosal, a preservative, does not cause autism or other developmental disabilities.
-We believe that vaccinating children and young adults may be the single most important health-promoting intervention we perform as healthcare providers, and that you can perform as parents/caregivers.
-The recommended vaccines and the vaccine schedule are the results of years and years of scientific study and data gathering on millions of children by thousands of our brightest scientists and physicians.
-Please recognize that by not vaccinating, you are putting your child at unnecessary risk for life-threatening illness and disability, and even death.
We are committed to protecting the health of your children, as well as all of our patients and their families. Therefore, we require all of our patients to be fully vaccinated. In order for us to provide full protection, we cannot honor any personal or religious exemptions.
We highly encourage our patients to follow our standard recommended vaccination schedule, but can work to honor split/delayed vaccine schedules with the following guidelines:
We ask that infants receive all age-appropriate recommended vaccines by three months of age. We ask that additional recommended vaccines as well as booster doses are given by two years of age.
-We ask that children receive the additional recommended booster doses by the time they are six years old.
-We ask that your preteen (11–12y vaccinations) are given by the time they are 13 years old.
-We ask that your 16-year old teen vaccinations are given before the child’s 17th birthday.
Thank you for taking the time to read this policy. Please feel free to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about vaccines with any one of us.
