Recommended Vaccines and Screenings

We strive to ensure that all of our patients, as well as our community, are as healthy as possible. This involves regular well child visits, or “check-ups,” during which vaccinations and/or behavioral screenings are administered. Our pediatricians recommend parents vaccinate their children per the schedule supported by the American Academy of Pediatrics and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
