Mansfield Pediatrics accepts only new patients with parents/guardians that will permit immunizations.
For current patient families with unvaccinated children, Mansfield Pediatrics requests that unimmunized or partially immunized children start a catch-up immunization schedule. Families will have until July 1, 2020, to get up to date on vaccines. Parents/guardians who are unwilling to commit to an immunization schedule will need to find another provider outside of Mansfield Pediatrics.
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 or alter their vaccine schedules should contact us to discuss the needed vaccines and their recommendations for catch up vaccines in a timely fashion. Each catch-up schedule is unique to the child.
