Vaccines have been proven to prevent serious illness and death. All children and young adults should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedules published by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics, unless there is a medical contraindication.
For the safety of all of our patients and community, we support these vaccinations and expect our patients to comply with the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended vaccines and the Maryland Department of Health required vaccines.
We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child’s next visit. If your child is currently not in compliance with these requirements, we will discuss how to best approach the requirements so there are no safety or school attendance issues.
If you do not intend to follow the current required vaccine schedule from the Maryland Department of Health, we will ask you to find another health care provider. The well-being of our patients and community is our primary concern.
