Vaccine Policy:

We believe that vaccines are an important part of both public health and the health of our patients. Thus, Dr. Benson and Dr. Malloney require our patients to be vaccinated according to the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control guidelines. We typically defer or do not give vaccines to children only when a medical condition deems appropriate. For information about these vaccines and the diseases they protect against, please visit http://www.aap.org/healthtopics/immunizations.cfm.

For detailed informational sheets published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) please visit www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/vis/.
