4 Ways to Ensure Worry-Free Children's Vaccinations

Vaccines are necessary to protect children from illness, and Santa Monica Pediatrics and Adult Medicine ensures their patients are safe from unwanted side-effects

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Before sending your kids off to school, it's more important than ever to keep them safe from potential illnesses through vaccination from an expertly trained medical professional. At Santa Monica Pediatrics and Adult Medicine, resident pediatrician Dr. Parisa A. Khorsandi is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, and she understands that there is growing concern among some parents about vaccinations. That's why the popular pediatrician in Santa Monica makes certain that her staff is able to meet or exceed the highest standards of sterility and vaccine injection techniques expected by their patients. In fact, to ensure safety, the facility utilizes the following 4 safety measures:

  1. Compliance with CDC Guidelines – The team at Santa Monica Pediatrics and Adult Medicine is committed to offering medicine that is in line with recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
  2. Proper storage – Vaccines at the facility are preservative-free, so they are kept in a temperature-controlled refrigerator to ensure contents remain safe and effective. They are also provided by top domestic manufacturers – the clinic's vaccines are never imported.
  3. Refusal to use multi-dose vial vaccines – By rejecting multi-dose vial vaccines, Dr. Khorsandi and her team eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination, since single unit vaccines have far fewer additional chemicals, and in many cases they include no extra chemicals at all.
  4. Use of the California Immunization Registry – Information for children who are vaccinated at Santa Monica Pediatrics and Adult Medicine is entered into the state's immunization registry, an online password-protected site that is provided by Los Angeles County and can be accessed from anywhere. This means that even if you lose track of your children's health records, they'll be kept safe, accurate and secure.

The start of the new school year is always one of the busiest times of the year for families with young children, adolescents or teens, so it's vital to trust treatment to an efficient pediatrician who makes time to treat every patient with the utmost care. For instance, Santa Monica Pediatrics and Adult Medicine utilizes cutting-edge appointment-making software that allows for a minimal wait time for patients. This permits doctors to spend more time with each individual patient, while also limiting interaction between sick patients and healthy visitors. After all, the last thing you want is to come down with an illness after a trip to the doctor!

Whether you're looking to vaccinate your children for the beginning of a new school year, or are seeking out sports physicals, or need digital X-rays for sports injuries or any other pediatric or adult concern, don't hesitate to get in touch with Santa Monica Pediatrics and Adult Medicine. Their team also offers travel medicine and the immigration medical exam Los Angeles immigrants need to legally enter the country, among other common medical needs.
