Family First Primary Care Vaccine Policy Statement
Because of vaccines, many of you have never seen a child with polio, tetanus, whooping cough, bacterial meningitis, or even chickenpox. We are fortunate to have extraordinary scientists that have and continue to create lifesaving vaccinations for adults, children and generations to follow.
We believe in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives. We believe in the safety of our vaccines. We believe that all children and young adults should receive the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We believe that vaccines do not cause autism or other developmental disabilities. We believe that vaccinating children and young adults may be the single most important health-promoting intervention we perform as healthcare providers and that you can perform as parents/caregivers.
