At Hartford Area Pediatrics, we firmly believe in the safety and efficacy of vaccines to prevent serious illness and death.

Vaccinating your child is the single most important intervention we perform as your child’s pediatrician. We therefore require that all of our patients be vaccinated. We strongly encourage all of our families to vaccinate based on the current American Academy of Pediatrics schedule.

In rare circumstances when desired by families we will separate vaccines. Please be advised that deviating from the recommended schedule puts your child at risk for serious illness and goes against our medical advice.

There may be a charge for additional vaccine visits.
