Vaccines are widely regarded as one of the greatest medical advances of the 20th Century. Dr. Edelstein follows the vaccine schedule as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. He feels very fortunate to practice during a time when we have the capabilities to safely prevent deadly infections in our children, as well as in a country where we are able to provide this care to all of the children. Dr. Edelstein does not accept new patients who refuse to vaccinate or choose an alternative vaccine schedule for their children.
