Statement of Support

 

Providence Pediatrics supports the American Academy of Pediatrics along with the CDC's recommendations for immunizations.  For any questions about the safety and efficacy of vaccines, please review the links below or speak with one of the physicians at your child's next visit.

 

Due to the rising incidence of vaccine preventable illnesses and the risks to newborns and immunocompromised patients, we are no longer accepting new families who are choosing to not vaccinate their children.
