Pediatricians at Novant Health Waughtown Pediatrics follow the vaccination schedule for children and young adults as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics. We believe vaccinating children and young adults is the most important health-promoting intervention we perform as healthcare providers.
Children are at greater risk as the number of unvaccinated families grows in our country. Newborns are the group most vulnerable to contracting a serious illness.
We understand that decisions about vaccinations can be very emotional for some parents. We want to work with you as you make these important decisions. If you have questions about a specific vaccine, please call and talk a member of our care team.
