Vaccination Information and Schedule

It is the policy of Kids First Pediatrics to utilize ONLY the vaccine administration schedule structured and endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and required by the state of North Carolina. Kids First Pediatrics will not accept any of the various “alternative” vaccine administration schedule. The only exception to this policy will be based upon documented medical indications, at the discretion of the patient's physician.

Effective October 1, 2012, private providers may no longer provide Vaccines for Children (VFC) immunizations to underinsured children (you have insurance but vaccines are NOT a covered benefit).  These changes are based on new federal requirements issued from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These vaccines will still be available for underinsured patients, but only through the local Health Departments. Kids First Pediatrics is able to administer the vaccinations at a fee per vaccine.

Vaccinations: Kids First Pediatrics strongly believe in the benefits of and recommend immunizations for all our patients with the exception of children who have a medical contraindication to receive them.

We follow the vaccination schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Center for Disease Control and a schedule that meets North Carolina Immunization Requirements.

We are available to answer any questions related to vaccines and their administration schedule and do not offer an alternative immunization schedule to our patients.
