It is the firm belief of the pediatricians at Just 4 Kids Pediatrics that the American Academy of Pediatrics Vaccination schedule is safe and provides the best protection for your child when followed as written.
If you as a parent wish not to adhere to this schedule we will give you 2 options. The first is the Dr. Sears Alternative Vaccination Schedule and the second is an alternative that increases the frequency of visits and decreases the number of vaccines at a given time for the 2, 4 and 6 month shots. Any other schedules will no longer be accepted. It is becoming increasingly difficult to have patients on multiple different vaccination schedules. Our priority is the health and safety of your children and with the increase in the numbers and varieties of vaccination schedules there is an increase in risk of errors in the administration of those vaccines. We are no longer willing to take this risk.
If your child is currently receiving vaccinations according to another alternative schedule already agreed upon by our physicians we will continue to work with you to complete your child’s vaccines.
If you feel you are unable or unwilling to complete the required childhood vaccines according to the AAP or accepted alternative schedules we encourage you to find a pediatrician who shares your philosophy of care for your child. As of April 2015 we will no longer accept patients who do not wish to immunize.
