Vaccine Policy

Chico Pediatrics firmly believes in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illnesses and save lives. We also firmly believe in the safety of vaccines. All physicians and staff provide vaccines on schedule to our own children. Our office follows the vaccine schedule (http://www2.aap.org/immunization/izschedule.html) outlined by the Center of Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics which has been scientifically tested for safety and efficacy.

There is no such thing as a tested or safe “alternative” vaccine schedule. We will be happy to provide information to help you understand the science behind vaccines, but we have a commitment to our patients to keep them safe and provide the best pediatric care available. This includes vaccinations on time, according to the CBC/AAP schedule.

Antibiotics:
We work hard to not overuse antibiotics. We educate families on appropriate use of antibiotics, but follow evidence-based guidelines and do not automatically treat ear pain or a green snotty nose with antibiotics. We do not routinely call in antibiotics over the phone as we do not believe that is good medicine. We believe antibiotics are appropriate treatment, we will be happy to answer your questions.
