We strongly believe in giving appropriate vaccines to your child for all vaccines-preventable diseases. Parents concern(s) about any of the Vaccines For Children (VFC), AAP & CDC recommended vaccines should always be brought-up and discussed with your child’s primary care provider/doctor.
Properly keeping/storing the respective vaccines in their prescribed storage temperatures to ensure their effectiveness is of prime importance to all of us here at Care-Well Pediatrics, LLC. With the use of VFC prescribed vaccines storage refrigerators and storage thermometers, we check and/or monitor our Vaccines Storage facilities and record their temperature at least thrice a day. We religiously use up-to-date ‘check sheets’ and regularly conduct monthly physical inventory to make sure we always have ample supply of current (by removing those that are expired) & effective vaccines for your precious little ones.
In total support of ‘Vaccines For Children’ immunization program, & upon the parents/guardians agreement, the following vaccines will be administered to your child usually coinciding with their ‘Well Care’ check-ups visits:
|Total Qty.||Vaccines Given||Child's Age|
