North River Pediatrics firmly believes in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illnesses and save lives. We also firmly believe in the safety of vaccines. All physicians and staff provide vaccines on schedule to our own children. Our office follows the vaccine schedule outlined by the Centers for Disease Control
outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics which has been scientifically tested for safety and efficacy.
There is no such thing as a tested or safe "alternative" vaccine schedule. We will be happy to provide information to help you understand the science behind vaccines, but we have a commitment to our patients to keep them safe and provide the best pediatric care available. This includes vaccinations on time, according to the CDC/AAP schedule.
