NJ 2-1-1 helps people find solutions to personal needs by informing them of resources in their community.

The New Jersey Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (NJAAP) calls for each of us to take action to end systemic racism and senseless violence that further risk the lives and health of our children and our communities.

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.
