Pediatric Associates of Hillsborough follows the immunization guidelines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). For the most updated information about these vaccines and the diseases they protect against, please visit here.
Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.
New parents who are questioning whether to vaccinate should feel free to discuss further with us; however for the safety of our other patients we do require infants to begin vaccination by 6 months old at the latest.
