We prioritize your child's health and well-being by providing comprehensive vaccine information and services. Vaccines are crucial for preventing serious illnesses and safeguarding your child's health, and we're here to ensure you have all the information you need to make informed decisions about your child's immunization schedule.

The doctors and pediatric nurse practitioners at Garden Pediatrics are strong advocates for vaccinations. The opportunity to immunize our children is one of the greatest gifts science has given us. We also understand parents have the right and responsibility to make medical decisions for their children. In that spirit, we want to be sure you feel encouraged to discuss your questions and concerns with us.


If you would like to wait on vaccinations or vaccinate on a different schedule than recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP), we require that you schedule a visit with us first, prior to any other of your child’s appointments so that we can discuss your child’s plan of care, immunization, and scheduling.


We cannot combine other visits with the first vaccination schedule discussion appointment. This visit usually takes approximately 20-30 minutes so please plan accordingly.


In accordance with State law, we do not grant vaccine deferrals or exemptions for personal or religious reasons. Further, any delay letters or exemptions for school require filing through CAIR-ME online and must meet strict medical guidelines for doing, which most people will not meet.
