Vaccines are one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention. At Western Wake Wellness, our policy is that all children should receive immunizations according to the guidelines of ACIP and the CDC. We welcome families who are hesitant about routine vaccination and who are open to respectful discussion about vaccination beliefs at each visit.
Our office follows the CDC vaccine schedule listed below as our preferred vaccine schedule. For families who desire a slower vaccine schedule, we offer the Dr Sears schedule as an alternative but do not customize individual patient vaccine schedules.
On-time vaccination throughout childhood is essential because it helps provide immunity before children are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases. Vaccines are tested to ensure that they are safe and effective for children to receive at the recommended ages (CDC).
Currently, we are not accepting new families who choose not to vaccinate. Failure to complete vaccines as scheduled will result in termination of the provider and patient relationship.
Our providers are happy to discuss any questions or concerns about vaccinations and direct you to reliable sources of information. We look forward to welcoming your family into our practice.
