Vaccinations & immunizations
Some of the very best tools we have to protect your child from disease and even death are vaccines. Vaccines have been well-researched and have proven results in disease prevention. Side effects are rare and usually extremely mild. Vaccines are normally covered by insurance.
Novant Health Forsyth Pediatrics follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's vaccine schedules. If you choose to delay some vaccines or reject some vaccines entirely, there can be risks. Parents will need to notify us if their child is not fully vaccinated or on an alternative vaccine schedule.
If you have any questions or concerns about vaccines, please ask anyone in any of our office or discuss your concerns with your child's provider. We are happy to answer questions and alleviate concerns.
Getting your child vaccinated on time is one of the best ways to keep your child healthy!
