Our Vaccination Philosophy
Parents- Please note: We are a pro-vaccination clinic. If you do not wish to immunize your child, please look for another clinic that will better fit your needs.
Desert Pediatrics believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccinations according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. Vaccinations are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.
We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child’s next visit.
