After much deliberation and discussion, as of March 2, 2015 we are no longer accepting new families who are refusing all vaccines. We feel strongly that vaccination is the best way to protect infants, children, and the community from a variety of serious and sometimes life threatening illness and as such we cannot in good conscience support the notion that refusing them is in your child’s best interest. We want parents though who have questions about vaccine safety to have their concerns addressed and we have at our core mission a goal to partner with parents through dialogue. We encourage families who want more information and are open to vaccines to schedule a 30 minute Vaccine Consultation appointment where you can discuss your concerns and we can give you evidence-based information to help guide you. New families in the practice will need to initiate vaccination of infants by 6 months of age and older children behind on vaccines within a month of joining the practice. For more details about our Vaccine Policy see our Vaccine Page. Like all families in the practice, parents will need to sign the Patient Agreement, and if opting for an alternate schedule the Refusal to Vaccinate form each time vaccines are offered but not given.
