As medical professionals, Dr. Sammy and the team at Robertson Pediatrics feel very strongly that vaccinating children on schedule with currently available vaccines is the right thing to do for all children and adolescents.
Immunizations, or vaccines, stimulate your child’s body to make protective antibodies. These antibodies protect them from getting sick or contracting a disease. If they do get sick after being vaccinated, their symptoms usually aren’t severe.
Dr. Sammy and the team firmly believe in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent illness and save lives, and they recommend following the vaccination schedule of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Some of the highly effective vaccines available at Robertson Pediatrics include:
If your kids are scared of shots, Dr. Sammy has mastered the ability to administer vaccines with little to no pain and has helped many children overcome their fear of needles.
Dr. Sammy lets you know which immunizations are right for your child after reviewing their medical history, lifestyle habits, and vaccination history. He may complete a physical exam and diagnostic testing, if needed, before working with you to customize a vaccine schedule.
When getting immunizations at Robertson Pediatrics, your child rests on a comfortable exam table or chair. Dr. Sammy cleans the injection site and gently inserts a very tiny needle into their arm or leg to inject antibody-stimulating substances.
After receiving immunizations at Robertson Pediatrics, your child can resume their daily routine. However, they may feel tired or develop mild side effects, such as a low-grade fever, a headache, or muscle aches that will usually self-resolve within 24-48 hours. Call Dr. Sammy’s office if your child develops severe symptoms or signs of an allergic reaction.
Some immunizations require more than one dose, or annual doses, to minimize your child’s risk of getting sick. Dr. Sammy lets you know when to schedule the next dose.
