Plainsboro Pediatrics is
strongly in support of all childhood and adolescent vaccines.
Our office follows the vaccination schedule recommended by American
Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control. Vaccines, historically and in the current day,
have saved millions of children’s lives and have tremendously reduced the burden
of illness for millions more children for over a hundred years. Our office is dedicated to wellness and disease
prevention in infants, children and adolescents, and an integral part of this
is timely and appropriate vaccination.
children pose a serious risk to vulnerable children and people that they may
encounter in our waiting room such as newborns, the immuno-compromised and the
elderly. At Plainsboro Pediatrics vaccines
will be given according to the recommended schedule and alternative schedules
will not implemented. This dedication to
disease prevention and vaccination requires understanding and agreement by the
physician-parent-child triad. We are a team and a shared philosophy and goal is
crucial for the delivery of optimal healthcare for your child.
Families who completely oppose vaccination
and/or are selecting only a few vaccinations for their children will not find
Plainsboro Pediatrics to be the best fit for them and are encouraged to find a
practice that shares their philosophy.
However, if a child has been inadequately vaccinated in the past but
would like to join our practice, we would be happy to accept as long as a catch-up-immunization
schedule is discussed and implemented as quickly as possible.
