Immunization Policy Acknowledgment Form

In order to ensure the health and safety of our patients and their families, the providers of St. Clair Pediatrics require that all of our patients receive immunizations in accordance with the current vaccination schedule. This schedule follows the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics  (AAP), the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP), the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). We firmly believe in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives. We firmly believe in the safety of vaccines. We firmly believe that delaying or “splitting up” the vaccinations puts your child and the patients at our practice at risk of contracting serious illnesses and possible death.
