It is our belief that vaccine compliance is critical to the health and well being of our children. We adhere to the American Academy of Pediatrics schedule of vaccines. However, we are happy to work with parents regarding the spacing of vaccines. If you choose not to immunize your children, PrimeCare Pediatrics might not be the best fit for you and your family.
