We are honored that you have chosen Lovenheim Pediatrics as the medical home for your children. Like you, we believe there is nothing more important than keeping your children healthy and safe. We understand that parents/guardians have questions and concerns regarding vaccines and our providers are happy to discuss these concerns with you. But, as pediatric health care providers, it is our responsibility to promote the safest possible environment for all our patients. Therefore, we will no longer enable parents to refuse vaccines for their children.
Effective 06/1/19, our new vaccine policy will be as follows:
All patients must receive all recommended vaccines according to the Centers for Disease Control/American Academy of Pediatrics vaccine schedule unless there is a medical contraindication. Parents/Guardians/Patients will have 30-days after being informed of this policy verbally and in writing to find another health care provider.
