Keeping Your Kids Healthy


Immunization Policy

  • Mansfield Pediatrics accepts only new patients with parents/guardians that do not refuse immunizations.
  • Our providers will be happy to field you questions/concerns about any vaccination to help make an informed decision. We do allow delayed vaccine schedules within reason as documented below.  
  • Mansfield Pediatrics will continue to accept new pediatric patients and retain established pediatric patients who either have compromised immune systems or documented adverse reactions to vaccines. Our providers will work with those patients on an individual basis.

For Our Patients’ Safety

Mansfield Pediatrics’ primary concern is the safety of all our patients. We consider all children who are not vaccinated according to AAP, CDC, and ACIP guidelines as “unvaccinated.” The immunization policy has been revised so that our clinic will not pose health risks to our most vulnerable patients such as infants who are too young to be immunized and children who have weakened immune systems.

Catch Up Vaccines

Parents/guardians of patients who have already complied with the recommended vaccines need not be concerned about any needed “catch up.” Parents of patients who have chosen to delay vaccines and want to join our medical home should contact us to discuss the needed vaccines and the recommendations for catch up vaccines. Each catch-up schedule is unique to the child.
