Alternative Immunization Schedules and Visit Fees
Our recommended immunization schedule is consistent with
We prefer polyvalent vaccines which protect against multiple diseases with a single injection (Pentacel) and infant pneumonia vaccine (Prevnar) starting at two months of age.
Although we’re aware of alternative immunization schedules which limit vaccination to single antigen shots one at a time, we believe those schedules are less effective because they achieve protection too slowly.
If parents choose alternative vaccination schedules the children will need extra shot visits to get their protection or fall behind in gaining needed protection.
Extra vaccination only visits beyond usual checkups mean more crowded waiting rooms and extra work for our nurse/immunizers.
To compensate for that extra burden on our resources, we are assessing a $25 surcharge in addition to any regular copays or deductibles that are otherwise due.
If a vaccination only visit has been suggested by your doctor because of an illness or other medical reason that surcharge will be waived, but only if the MD has indicated it at the prior checkup visit.
