Vaccine Policy Statement

The medical professionals of Capitol Pediatrics and Adolescent Center firmly believe in the importance of administering vaccines to prevent serious illnesses and even death.  For your children’s health and safety, it is our upmost responsibility to ensure that they receive the recommended immunizations at the appropriate time.  What follows is our vaccine policy.  

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 all children and young adults should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
We firmly believe, based on all available literature, evidence and current studies, that vaccines do not cause autism or other developmental disabilities.  We firmly believe that thimerosal, a preservative that has been in vaccines for decades and remains in some vaccines, does not cause autism or other developmental disabilities.
We firmly believe that vaccinating children and young adults may be the single most important health-promoting intervention we perform as health care providers, and that you can perform as parents/caregivers.  The recommended vaccines and their schedule given are the results of years of scientific study and data gathering on millions of children by thousands of our brightest scientists and physicians.

These things being said, we recognize that there has always been and will likely always be controversy surrounding vaccination.  The vaccine campaign is truly a victim of its own success.  It is precisely because vaccines are so effective at preventing illness that we are even 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, or known a friend or family member whose child died of one of these diseases.  Such success can make one complacent about vaccinating.  But such an attitude, if it becomes widespread, can only lead to tragic results.

Over the past several years, many people in Europe have chosen not to vaccinate their children with the MMR vaccine after publication of an unfounded suspicion (which was later retracted) that the vaccine caused autism.  As a result of under-immunization, there have been outbreaks of measles and deaths from complications of measles.

We are compelled to emphasize that families who choose not to vaccinate their children remain advantaged by the thousands of others who do vaccinate their children.  The effort and the small risk which families assume when they choose to vaccinate their children decreases the likelihood that any and all children will contract one of these diseases.  We feel very strongly that it is imperative all members of our community commit to the effort of protecting one another against deadly childhood diseases by doing their part to vaccinate their children.

We are making you aware of these facts not to scare you or coerce you, but to emphasize the importance of vaccinating your child.  We recognize that the choice may be a very emotional one for some parents.  We will do everything we can to convince you that vaccinating according to the schedule is the right thing to do.  However, should you have doubts, please discuss these with your health care provider in advance of your visit.  In some cases, we may alter the schedule to accommodate parental concerns or reservations; however, we will require that all children complete their primary series of childhood vaccinations by the age of 2 years.  Please be advised, however, that delaying or “breaking up the vaccines” to give one or two at a time over two or more visits goes against expert recommendations, and can put your child at risk for serious illness or even death and goes against our medical advice as providers at Capitol Pediatrics and Adolescent Center.  Such additional visits will require additional co-pays on your part.  Furthermore, please realize that you will be required to sign a “Refusal to Vaccinate” acknowledgement for any delayed immunizations. 

Finally, if despite all our efforts, you should absolutely refuse to vaccinate your child or do not intend to complete their primary series of childhood immunizations by 2 years of age, we will ask you to find another health care provider who shares your views.  We do not keep a list of such providers nor would we recommend any such physician.  Please recognize that by not vaccinating you are putting your child at unnecessary risk for life-threatening illness, disability, and even death.

As medical professionals, we feel very strongly that vaccinating children on schedule with currently available vaccines is absolutely the right thing to do for all children and young adults.  Thank you for your time in reading this policy, and please feel free to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about vaccines with any one of us.
