Vaccine Policy

Southwest Pediatrics strongly believes in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illnesses and save lives. Our practice follows the vaccine schedule outlined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics which has been tested for safety and efficiency; and we firmly believe the benefits definitely outweigh the risk of immunizing.
In order to protect susceptible infants and children who visit our office, we will not be able retain or accept any patients who do not intend to be vaccinated. We feel that there is a rare but potential risk to other patients to be exposed in our waiting room with these serious illnesses which are preventable by immunizing and communicable if not.  
If you do not plan to vaccinate your children, a different pediatric office may suit your needs better and ask that you search for a different practice other than Southwest Pediatrics.
We respect your opinion but cannot agree with it if you choose to not to vaccinate.
We apologize for any inconvenience we may cause with this policy, but feel it is the right decision for our susceptible patients’ protection.
