Our Vaccine Philosophy, we are a pro-vaccine office.

Pedicorp, P. C. has a 100% vaccination policy. Our patients will be expected to complete their primary vaccination series according to the American Academy of Pediatrics and CDC guidelines. All patients will be expected to complete all state-mandated vaccines, or we will not be able to see them in this office. In addition, we are not able to arrange or administer split doses of vaccines. 

One of the biggest advancements in modern medicine is vaccinations which prevent potentially devastating childhood diseases, such as polio, meningitis and whooping cough. These diseases, which were nearly wiped out, are now undergoing a resurgence due to parents choosing not to vaccinate. They can cause not just disability, but death. We believe it is unethical to expose unvaccinated newborns and immunologically vulnerable children to these diseases. While we understand that parents may have concerns about vaccines due to media attention, we believe that vaccines are not only safe, but a vital part of your child's health.

Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.

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