At Beaufort Pediatrics, we strongly believe in routine well child visits throughout infancy and childhood. We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for administration of childhood immunizations and checkups. Vaccinations are critically important for the health and safety of your baby and for those who could potentially expose your child to dangerous illnesses. They are required for school and day care.
**For the safety of all our children, we CANNOT see families in our practice who choose not to vaccinate their children.**
