Child Immunization and Vaccination – Augusta, GA
The physicians of Augusta Pediatric Associates are all in agreement that childhood immunizations are one of the greatest medical blessings our children have and represent one of the greatest achievements of Western medicine.
Ironically, the very success of the vaccines has unfortunately caused some parents to believe that these immunizations are not necessary. The reasoning is that since the diseases are not seen often now, preventive vaccination is not needed. However, the diseases are still with us, and if numerous children are not immunized, we will see increasing numbers of our children becoming ill with vaccine-preventable illnesses.
Also, there has been much in the popular media over the past 15-20 years regarding vaccines, their safety, and their possible associations with autism or intellectual disabilities. This misinformation has caused some parents a great amount of fear and anxiety.
We will always discuss any scheduled vaccines for your baby or child at their visit. We welcome questions and want to discuss any concerns you may have. As physicians, we feel very strongly that vaccines are safe, effective, and are necessary for our patients. We cannot, in good conscience, practice substandard medicine by allowing our patients to remain at risk for serious and life-threatening illnesses. We truly believe that if we cannot agree on such fundamental issues of preventive care such as vaccines, our practice may not be a good fit for your family. In this vein, we have created an Immunization Policy for your review, which you may download by clicking below.
