Muskegon Pediatrics firmly understands the disease prevention and life saving benefits of routine childhood vaccinations. All children and young adults should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
We understand you may have concerns about vaccinations and we are here to help you navigate the care of your children. That said, it is our policy that if parents chose to deviate from the accepted schedule and delay routine vaccinations by the time their child is 4 months old, they will be discharged from our practice and expected to find a different primary care provider.
We are always available to answer questions on this topic. Contact our office for more information.
