IMMUNIZATIONS & SCREENING

Lake Vista Pediatrics maintains a pro-immunization stance, as the overall benefits of immunizations are evidence-based. We offer all individual vaccine formulations, except when unavailable, such as is the case with MMR and DTaP, to assist in keeping your children free of contagious harmful diseases. An integrative approach to immunizing your child is representative of Lake Vista Pediatrics; namely, we present parents with evidence-based facts regarding the benefits and adverse reactions of the vaccines, and partner with parents, understanding and respecting their research-based reservations, to do our best to guide their decisions. Our mission is based on the conviction that both parents and accredited healthcare professionals should decide care of the child.

The following is a guide to your child’s comprehensive health care, adapted from the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics:
