COPA doctors respect the concerns of parents regarding immunizations for their young children. We know it's hard to see a child 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.
Without these immunizations, each child and the community at large is at great risk of contracting a serious illness. We adhere to the highest quality of medical standards and recommend the vaccination schedules accepted by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
We welcome this conversation with you, as a loving parent who wants to provide the best care for your child. Please feel free to discuss your concerns with your child's pediatrician.
