Our Vaccine Policy

Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. 

The Physicians and Staff of Pavilion Pediatrics at Green Spring Station clearly  recognize the importance of childhood immunizations. These immunizations have been proven to be safe and effective in preventing serious childhood diseases. The vaccination schedule, as outlined by the Center for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics, is designed to protect your child before they are likely to be exposed to a potentially serious disease. Due to the importance of these vaccines, we will not alter your child’s vaccination schedule.  Maintaining the appropriate vaccination schedule helps us protect your child from preventable diseases, and other children from potential exposure to these diseases.  

We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child's next visit.
