Los Alamitos Pediatrics follows the immunization guidelines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
We highly recommend following the vaccine schedule supported by the American Academy of Pediatrics (schedule can be found on the “schedule of visits” tab under “Patient Information” section), but for those who choose an alternative schedule, the following is our minimal vaccine requirement to remain as patients in our office:
- 3 doses of DTaP, Hib, Prevnar by 9 months
- 1 dose of MMR & Varivax by 15 months
Along with this minimum requirement, our expectation is that all patients eventually get fully vaccinated. To protect the health of all children in our practice and to decrease the risks of vaccine preventable diseases in our community, we may dismiss your child from our practice if they are “too far behind” with vaccines.
