We believe that immunizations are beneficial to your child’s health. The United States Food and Drug Administration has a very meticulous regimen for approving vaccines, and we feel that they have approved and constantly recommend only vaccines which are safe, effective, and protect our children and others in our community from many serious diseases. Vaccines, like any medicine, have potential side effects; however, it is our belief at PrimeCare Pediatrics that the huge benefits of disease prevention far outweigh the risks of side effects posed by these vaccines. We encourage parents to be informed by reading reliable information about vaccines.
