Vaccine Policy

Northside Pediatrics firmly believes in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illnesses and save lives.  
 
Our doctors have seen serious and fatal infectious diseases eradicated by vaccines, one of the most important public health improvements of the last century. We also firmly believe in the safety of vaccines, providing the same vaccines on the same schedule to our own children.  
 
Our office follows the vaccine schedule that has been thoroughly tested scientifically and found to be safe and effective by the American Academy of Pediatrics and Center for Disease Control. There is no such thing as a tested or safe “alternative” or “delayed” schedule.  
 
We will be happy to provide information to help you understand the science behind vaccines if you have any questions regarding vaccines. The commitment to our patients and our community to keep them safe and provide the best pediatric care available includes giving vaccines on time according to the AAP schedule.
