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.

Title: The Intersection of Child Trafficking & Healthcare: Our Unique Role as Pediatric Clinicians
Human trafficking is a pervasive public health problem that affects children of all ages. Healthcare clinicians can play a unique role in identifying and intervening for trafficking victims through acknowledging biases, understanding the risk factors and red flags, and implementing a trauma-informed care approach in their clinics and institutions. It is through collaboration, education, and research that healthcare clinicians can work to recognize and respond to this crime perpetrated against our youngest and most vulnerable patients.
