Immunizations

Immunizations protect your child. In fact, they are considered the single most important preventative intervention for children’s health. Yet, immunization rates continue to lag well below recommended levels. Some parents are reluctant to immunize their children because they fear side effects or worry that vaccines are linked to autism. After intense investigation, multiple respected health organizations, including the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Institute of Medicine all state that there is no evidence to support a link. In fact, the AAP believes that immunizations are the safest and most cost-effective way of preventing disease, disability and death.

Children's Physicians is committed to making sure children are vaccinated. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has set a goal of 90 percent for pediatric immunization coverage. Every Children's Physicians office location exceeds that threshold. In 2012, 94 percent of our patients over age 2 were current on immunizations, but we're not at 100 percent. We can't include the families who haven't scheduled their child's well-check visits or those who refuse to vaccinate their children. In 2013, we will continue to encourage parents to have their children vaccinated and schedule timely vaccination appointments.
