COPA doctors respect the concerns of parents regarding immunizations for their young children. We know it’s hard to see a child uncomfortable and get poked with needles. We also recognize the great success these vaccinations have had on reducing childhood disease and death, compared with just a few decades ago.
We adhere to the highest quality of evidence-based information about immunizations as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Without these immunizations, each child and the community at large is at great risk of contracting a serious illness.
Each child is unique and discussions regarding your child’s vaccinations are welcome by your pediatrician. As a loving parent who wants to provide the best care for your child, we know this is an important conversation.
Dr. Logan Clausen, Chief Medical Officer with COPA, discusses the importance of immunizations in the care of children.
