Vaccine Office Policy
Vaccinations can be a difficult decision for families. Choosing not to vaccinate puts some of our most vulnerable patients at risk. Therefore, effective immediately (September 12, 2022), we no longer accept unvaccinated new patients or families who plan on not vaccinating their newborn child(ren). If you have any questions regarding vaccines please call our office to speak with a nurse or discuss with your physician at your next appointment.

Children between the ages of 9 months to 3 years of age are more likely to eat lead containing products (dirt, dust, old paint particles, etc.). Lead exposure in early childhood is associated with developmental delay and reduced IQ, adversely affecting long-term cognitive outcomes, school performance, and social functioning.
*Lead screening tests are required by the state of Delaware at 1 and 2 years of age.
