With the very dramatic resurgence in whooping cough which we have had in Addison County, we are working hard to make sure that all of our patients are fully immunized. We strongly recommend vaccination to protect your child against preventable and possibly serious childhood illness. We understand that parents have many questions regarding immunizations and we strive to answer them for you. We understand that not all our patients are comfortable with the current immunization guidelines and we want to work with you to form a plan for your child in a mutually respectful manner. The list of  immunization resources below may be helpful as you make your decision.

Some simple strategies may make the physical discomfort of immunizing a little easier for both parent and child.  Some information regarding infants can be found here.  For older children, this link offers some simple strategies as well. 

It's OK to Ask - Parent’s questions about immunizations deserve straightforward answers.  This website was created by the Immunization Program at the Vermont Department of Health to provide a place where parents can find those answers.  It delivers up-to-date vaccine information from both the medical literature and trusted local pediatricians and nurses.
