Because Reading Pediatrics is committed to quality health care, we believe strongly in the safety, effectiveness, and the importance of these vaccines. Parents who do not wish to protect their children from these deadly diseases will be advised to seek medical care for their children elsewhere. For descriptions of these vaccines and the diseases they protect against, please consult the following charts. Parents concerned about the safety of these vaccines are strongly encouraged to consult the following web sites: www.immmunizationinfo.org, www.vaccinesafety.edu, or www.immunize.org.
