Immunizations

The doctors of Novant Health Elizabeth Pediatrics believe strongly in the benefit and importance of childhood immunizations. We closely follow the current immunization schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). This committee meets three times a year at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.

For information on vaccines, the diseases vaccines prevent, and vaccine safety see:
