Vaccines Save Lives. Call Agave Pediatrics to Protect Your Child.
Childhood vaccinations are extremely important in preventing a number of diseases—many of which can be fatal or cause lifelong disability. Thanks to immunizations, diseases that once claimed thousands of young lives are now rare and preventable.
Diseases that are now preventable through vaccinations include:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Influenza / flu
According to a report from the United States Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), immunizations saved over 732,000 children’s lives and prevented approximately 322 million cases of childhood sickness during the 20-year period between 1994 and 2004. If you have questions about vaccinations and how to protect your child against preventable diseases, we encourage you to visit the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention website for more information:http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/imz/child-adolescent.html
At Agave Pediatrics, we respect each parent’s right to choose their child’s course of health care delivery. Although we recommend the American Academy of Pediatrics vaccination schedule, we gladly accept patients with alternate vaccination schedules as well as those who choose not to vaccinate.
