Vaccines are safe and effective lifesaving treatments. There is no evidence that vaccines cause autism or other developmental disabilities.
The pediatricians and pediatric advanced practitioners of Reliant Medical Group and Southboro Medical Group follow the vaccination schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Vaccinating children and young adults may be the single most important health-promoting intervention we can do for our children. While we understand there are some controversies about vaccines, we agree with the experts in the field and recommend following the recommended schedule. Not vaccinating or using a made up “alternative” schedule is unsafe and can expose children to vaccine-preventable diseases. This puts both the unvaccinated child as well as other children in the community at risk.
