Vaccines are one of the most important and effective ways you can protect your child from harmful and life-threatening diseases. Due to the development and administration of vaccines, the occurrence of vaccine-preventable diseases is at or near record lows.

At 1st Choice Pediatrics, we believe that children should be vaccinated and we agree with the current immunization schedules for children and adolescents. These scientific and research-based recommendations are approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

We understand that parents have concerns and questions regarding immunizations. Our hope is that each parent makes a well-educated decision on this issue. When seeking to learn more about vaccinations for your children, be sure to utilize resources with accurate evidence-based information. For further reading, please check out the following websites:
