All About Immunizations
Immunizations are the very heart of good pediatric care. They can cause fear in the patients " I don't want any shots!", and confusion in their parents "Can these vaccines cause Autism?". They are also the greatest public health story in the history of medicine-untold numbers of children and their families have been spared illness and death due to vaccine preventable diseases.
Despite the growing amount of misinformation available, many parents are finding the correct information about vaccines, and they are immunizing their children at near record levels. Even movie stars, and other notables such as former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, are now speaking in favor of vaccines for children. In this section we will keep you up to date with our immunzation schedule and any information that comes our way about vaccines from Anthrax to Zoster.
