Our Vaccination Policy
At Encompass Family Medicine, the providers firmly believe in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives. All children and young adults should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Based on all available literature, evidence, and current studies, vaccines do not cause autism or other developmental disabilities.
Vaccinating children and adults may be the single most important health-promoting intervention that healthcare providers can perform in partnership with patients/parents/caregivers . The recommended vaccines and the vaccination schedule are the results of years of scientific study and data gathered on millions of children by our country's leading scientists and physicians.
