Vaccines have been at the forefront of preventing infectious disease in America since General Washington inoculated the entire Continental Army to prevent smallpox in 1777. The use of vaccines has now eradicated smallpox internationally and polio isn’t far from complete eradication. Vaccines have drastically reduced the number of deaths from Measles, Haemophilus influenza, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pneumococcus and Chicken Pox. We strongly encourage the vaccines that are available and recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). We follow the schedule as outlined by the AAP.
