Immunizations

At Lone Tree Pediatrics, we have incorporated the vaccination schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). We require all patients are fully immunized or have intent to receive their immunizations upon visit. Medical services cannot be provided to those who do not maintain active immunizations. Please contact us should you have any further questions (303) 803-1005.
