At Magnolia Pediatrics, we follow evidence-based vaccine practices. We recognize the proven effectiveness of vaccines in preventing serious illness and saving lives. We know that vaccinations are safe, smart and necessary for the health and well-being of our patients, families and our community. Vaccinating your child may be the single most important health-promoting and life-saving intervention you can perform as a parent. For this reason, Magnolia Pediatrics requires that all patients in our practice adhere to the vaccination schedule endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The schedule can be found here.
We understand there is a lot of information about vaccines that prompts important questions for parents. We are happy to discuss immunizations and our vaccine policy in more detail. In addition, the following links are useful resources.
