Immunizations​

NOTE: There will be no NASAL MIST influenza (flu) vaccine this year as the American Academy of Pediatric (AAP) is not recommending its effectiveness. Please see the "Parent Page" for more flu information.

               

Philosophy: Primary Pediatric Medical Group (PPMG) is committed to promoting the health and well-being of your child. In keeping with that commitment, our policy is to give immunizations in accordance with the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) who have reviewed the manufacturing, effectiveness, side effects and risks of all immunizations we give.


Our schedule of vaccine administration, including the timing and number of vaccines given per visit is consistent with these national recommendations. All  our vaccines are thimerosal-free.  For descriptions of these vaccines and the diseases they protect against, please visit http://www.chop.edu/centers-programs/vaccine-education-centerwww.vaccinesafety.edu, or www.immunize.org. For detailed informational sheets published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) please visit www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/vis/index.html.
