What about immunizations?

 

​Immunizations are very important for the healthy development of your child and should be started at birth. The Children’s Doctors, P.C. follows The American Academy of Pediatrics recommended immunization schedule. If your child meets the necessary criteria, we can provide the vaccinations at a reduced fee thru the Vaccines For Children program. Please complete the Vaccines For Children Program Patient Eligibility Screening Record on the Patient Registration Form.
