Manet Community Health’s mission is to deliver quality, comprehensive health care to all our patients and families, and one of the most important services we can provide our patients is vaccinations against life threatening diseases.
We strongly agree with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that childhood vaccines are critical to maintaining healthy children and communities. As medical professionals, we feel that vaccinating children on schedule with currently available vaccines is the right thing to do for all children and young adults.
Our providers welcome discussion about our vaccines, which protect children, their families and our communities from deadly, preventable diseases by administering safe and effective vaccines. We encourage you to discuss any concerns, doubts or questions you may have about vaccines with your health care provider.
