Our stance on the Covid-19 Vaccine

A message from our founder....

Vaccines seem to always get the blame for lots of things. Really, we should be focused on all the good vaccines do for our world!
Is it not amazing that we live in a time when technology can produce a flu vaccine every year???

Protect against cancer through the HPV vaccine….

And, now, we have protection during a pandemic that has crippled our world?

Throughout my career, I have seen the end of Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib vaccine), Streptococcus pneumoniae (Prevnar 13 vaccine) and the decrease in the complications and hospital admissions for Rotavirus (oral Rotavirus vaccine).

Pediatricians advocate routinely to protect children and adolescents against harmful diseases, and we will continue to do so.
The CDC has recently lowered the age for the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine to age 12, showing a nearly perfect efficacy rate. The AAP strongly supports this statement and so do the practitioners at Shults Pediatrics.

 
We will be offering the Covid-19 vaccine beginning June 3rd. You may call 865-670-1560 to schedule today!
