Safe & Effective Vaccinations for Your Child in Smyrna, TN

Time Spent Keeping Your Child Healthy Is Time Well Spent

At Smyrna Pediatrics, we believe vaccinations are one of the most beneficial preventative measures to safeguard your child against infections. Vaccines can better protect your child and our society from harmful diseases like chickenpox, measles, and mumps. We support and follow the regulations of national organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and are always willing to answer any questions you may have.

One of the Greatest Legacies We Can Leave Our Children Is Our Health

At Smyrna Pediatrics, you and your child are in good hands. Vaccines contain small amounts of the same germs that cause diseases like the flu or chickenpox. However, a vaccine uses dead or weakened germs so they won’t make your child sick. Instead, a vaccine stimulates your child’s immune system and causes their body to produce antibodies for the specific illness. Antibodies act as defense mechanisms, lowering the risk of infections causing uncomfortable or potentially life-threatening symptoms. 

Before attending kindergarten, 7th grade, or joining as a new student, your child must have a Tennessee Department of Health Certificate of Immunizations. We can help you schedule vaccinations in time for your child’s first day of school, so you can rest easy knowing your child is protected. Avoid the back-to-school rush, and schedule your child’s vaccinations at Smyrna Pediatrics today!
