Immunizations

CHILDHOOD IMMUNIZATIONS

On these pages you will find general information relevant to ALL or MOST vaccines, detailed information about specific vaccines available through our office, as well as the schedule by which vaccines are supposed to be given. These articles summarize what we feel are the important things you need to know. For some vaccines there are also fliers published by the CDC and/or the AAP – when these exist you are required to read them prior to signing for the vaccines, but we ask that you also read our materials as these will usually more thoroughly address common questions we are asked.
