Well Visits

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 ( 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.

To keep your children healthy, it is important to bring them in for regular checkups. We recommend that you call us 2 weeks in advance so you may choose the date and time that best fits your needs.

Starting at age three we follow the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended schedule of yearly well child exams. In addition to a comprehensive internal history and physical exam, we perform many screenings for vision, hearing, scoliosis, emotional issues, and depression.
