Vaccinations

We are dedicated to ensuring your children stay protected from all serious vaccine-preventable diseases. One of the most cost effective and important preventive healthcare services any pediatrician provides is vaccinations.

In order to ensure the health and safety of our patients and their families, the providers of St. Clair Pediatrics require that all of our patients receive immunizations in accordance with the current vaccination schedule. Our doctors and nurses follow the vaccine safety recommendations created by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Academy of Pediatrics, Infectious Diseases Society of America and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. These agencies unanimously agree that well-studied vaccines given according to safety-tested schedules offer the best protection for children.
