FREE Telehealth Service During The COVID-19 Crisis

We can only fight COVID-19 together as a community and we are doing as much as we can to provide support to medical professionals.

Vaccinations

The New Jersey Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (NJAAP) supports current immunization requirements for children to attend child care centers, preschool facilities and schools in New Jersey, both public and private, as established by the New Jersey Department of Health NJDOH. Furthermore, we support legislative efforts that strengthen these requirements by passing legislation that allow for only medical exemptions from school-required vaccinations and also support medically indicated exemptions to specific immunizations as determined for each individual child.

Legislators: If you would find it helpful to speak with a New Jersey-based, board certified pediatrician regarding topics addressing vaccines for children, follow this LINK to schedule a call.

THE AGENDA FOR CHILDREN

The New Jersey Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics, believes every newborn, infant, child, adolescent and young adult should have access to the highest quality of medical care available, care that is most capably provided by a pediatrician led healthcare team, which is highly trained, credentialed and experienced in all aspects of the development and medical diagnosis and care of children at every age.
