Immunizations and Well Baby Care

As part of good preventative health care, your child should be seen for routine well-visits. Immunizations are an important part of these well visits.

Immunization is the process whereby a person is made immune or resistant to an infectious disease, typically by the administration of a vaccine. Vaccines reduce the risk of infection by working with the body’s natural defense to help it safely develop immunity to disease. We encourage you to read Dr. Franklin-Banton’s published article on immunizations: Parents, Immunize your Children
