We encourage all of our patients to follow the CDC-recommended vaccination schedule, but are available to discuss vaccine concerns with our patients. If you decide that you do not want to vaccinate your child you must sign a vaccination refusal form to be kept on file. If you refuse to sign the form, unfortunately we will not be able to see your child for their appointment.
*Parents please note that if your child is under the age of 18 and they are due for vaccines, you must accompany them to their appointment to sign off on the vaccine consent form.
