IMMUNIZATIONS

Sierra Pediatrics believes one of the most important things parents can do to protect their children is to make sure they are vaccinated against serious but preventable diseases. Weighing the pros and cons of immunizations and based on current medical evidence, we support the immunization schedule as outlined by the American Academy of Pediatrics and Centers for Disease Control.  Below is the vaccine schedule we typically follow.

Insurance and Vaccines:
Parents or guardians are encouraged to check their benefit booklet for coverage information or to call their insurance provider and ask the following questions:

  • Do I have insurance that covers immunizations?
  • Does my insurance cover Nevada state required immunizations?
  • Are there any coverage limitations or restrictions such as age limitations on covered vaccines or coverage with wellness exam only?
  • Will I have to pay anything for immunizations such as a co-pay, co-insurance or deductible?
  • Is there a maximum amount my insurance will cover each year for wellness services, preventative services or immunizations?
