Our Vaccine Philosophy

Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.
Dr. Hartz understands that some families may have questions about routine vaccinations, and is happy to discuss these concerns at your child’s next visit.
