Medical Websites Devoted to Vaccine Information:
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. Vaccines have eradicated smallpox internationally, they are close to eradicating polio as well, and they have drastically reduced the number of deaths from measles, Haemophilus influenza, tetanus, diphtheria, pneumococcus, and chicken pox. We strongly support 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. Please read our vaccine policy to understand our recommendations and standards before visiting our office.
