The Importance of Child Immunizations

Dr. Sheridyn Breedlove, Dr. Alison McAfee, Dr. Tiffany Moore, and Dr. Lisa Frees strongly believe in vaccinating children and young adults according to the vaccine schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Serving Birmingham and surrounding areas, Acton Road Pediatrics will strive to provide education to parents to ease any concerns and we will be happy to discuss the pros and cons of the recommended vaccines.
 
The vaccine campaign is truly a victim of its success. It is PRECISELY because vaccines are so effective at preventing illness that we are now reading about and discussing whether or not they should be given. Because of vaccines, many of you have never seen a child with polio, tetanus, whooping cough, bacterial meningitis, or even chickenpox. Many of you don’t know of a friend or family member whose child died of one of these diseases. The success of vaccines can make us complacent or even lazy about vaccinating. But such an attitude, if it becomes widespread, can lead to tragic results.
 
If you are on the fence as it relates to vaccines please seek information from reputable sources. These include visiting the CDC website or the website for the American Academy of Pediatrics. A better option is to speak with your doctor and then you can make an informed decision.
 
Acton Road Pediatrics firmly believes, based on all available literature, evidence, and current studies, that vaccines do not cause autism or other developmental disabilities.
 
If your child is not current on their vaccines please contact us today. Let’s make an appointment and get them up to date. You can reach our office by calling (205) 978-8245.
