ALTERNATIVE VACCINE SCHEDULE


We recognize and respect a parent’s role as the ultimate decision maker for a child’s healthcare.  We also believe strongly that we are obligated to deliver the best and safest healthcare possible for our patients and ensure the safety of all of our patients including those in our waiting rooms and exam rooms.  Vaccines are critical to achieving this goal. 

The following rules are effective as of March 1st, 2015:


  • Advanced Pediatrics will not accept NEW patients or NEW babies whose parents refuse all vaccines for their child.
  • Advanced Pediatrics will only accept NEW patients who agree to follow the vaccine schedule published by the Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).  This is published on both our website and that of the CDC.   This does allow for medical exemptions such as for live vaccines including MMR, chicken pox, and rotavirus in households where a family member is immunocompromised.
  • If parents refuse vaccines for a new baby in the family, we will not accept such newborns as patients of this practice per our policy.
