Infants and young children are particularly vulnerable to these diseases and as physicians, we have seen the devastating but preventable disabilities and complications which can result when children are not vaccinated.
We are well aware of the controversy which surrounds this topic but we are quite confident of the safety and benefits of recommended vaccines. All vaccines administered in our office are thimerosal-free. Our physicians believe that there is no advantage to spreading out the vaccines and that following the recommended schedule is the best standard of care. However, after appropriate discussion, we can modify the schedule as long as a family agrees to complete the recommended schedule by age two years. Pediatric Associates of Conn cannot accept patients whose parents refuse all immunizations.
