Our Vaccine Policy
Callisto Pediatrics firmly believe in the importance of vaccinations and the part they play in preventing serious and life-threatening illnesses. We respect your decision as parents regarding the vaccination of your children. Therefore, if you opt to delay or decline vaccinations recommended per CDC guidelines, you will be obligated to sign the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Refusal to Vaccinate Form at every well visit. Altering or refusing to sign the AAP Refusal to Vaccinate form will result in dismissal from our practice. We will be happy to continue to care for your children regardless of their vaccine status as long as they remain current with their regular well child checks as these check-ups are necessary to monitor growth and development. We are also happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child's next visit.
