Vaccine Policy

We the providers at Nurture Pediatrics love and value your children. It is important for us to protect them against communicable disease, and the way we do this is through providing life-saving vaccines.  The providers of Nurture Pediatrics follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) by encouraging our patients to vaccinate against diseases that can cause significant illness and even death. 

From this point forward (4/25/2018), we will no longer accept new patients who plan not to vaccinate their children.  

The providers of Nurture Pediatrics do not believe that an alternate vaccination schedule is necessary.  If it is the parent's desire to pursue a delayed vaccination schedule, it will be accepted as long as patients are caught up on recommended vaccines by 12 months old, then again by 2 years old, and finally by 5 years old.

If you have questions or concerns about vaccines, we are happy to discuss them with you. We look forward to providing you and your children with the best possible care for many years to come!
