Vaccines (immunizations) have been an important part of protecting the health of middle Tennesseans over the last several decades. Vaccines are one of the safest and best methods of prevention. Immunizations can be administered to children with minor illnesses, such as an ear infection or runny nose. Children experiencing moderate to severe sickness should not receive some vaccinations, and those with other health conditions should not be given specific vaccines or receive them at a later date.

Our office follows the immunization schedule recommended by the CDC. You can also view the patient resources page for more information. If you have any questions/concerns about your child’s immunizations, feel free to contact us.
