Vaccine Safety

Vaccine Safety continues to be a "hot topic" and one of the most frequently asked questions from new parents. Every couple days more research comes out to dispute claims that vaccines are ineffective or unsafe.

As you know, I trust the American Academy of Pediatrics stance on vaccines and I would not give MY children (let alone your children) vaccines if I had any doubt that they were safe and effective. If you have questions I would love to speak with you about vaccines, please call any time.

There are some great resources on the web to review the evidence for yourself.
