Information Sheets

Dr. Smith does recommend having every child vaccinated. Choosing to immunize is a powerful defense against disease that’s safe, proven, and effective. There is a false perception that these diseases are a thing of the past, but that is not the case. Not only will you be protecting your child, you are also protecting surrounding families whose children cannot be vaccinated due to their health conditions.
