Vaccination is the foundation and pillar of pediatrics. It is one of the most effective preventative health measures. Since the introduction of routine childhood vaccinations, the number of cases of most vaccine-preventable illnesses in the United States declined by more than 90 percent. We provide immunizations recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Vaccines have greatly improved child health over the past few decades, leading to significant reductions in infectious diseases that used to affect the majority of children when they were growing up, such as chicken pox, polio, and measels.

Question: What Do Immunizations Do?
Answer: Vaccines help prevent infectious diseases. They contain inactivated or weakened forms of viruses and bacteria that cause disease. Your body builds a defense to fight the germs in the vaccine as if they were real illnesses. This helps your immune system recognize the germs that can cause illness later in life.
Question: Which Immunizations Does My Child Need?
At Desert Valley Pediatrics, we are committed to providing our patients with the most up-to-date information about available vaccines and their proper administration. Let us know about any questions regarding vaccinations for your child when you schedule an appointment with us.
We believe that vaccines are one of the most important public health accomplishments of the 20th century. In order to maintain the standard of care and keep all of our complex and medically fragile patients as safe as possible, we require all of our patients to be immunized.
