Kid Care Pediatrics providers believe in the efficacy of vaccines and strongly recommend patients receive state and school mandated immunizations in varying schedules. Elective vaccines are also offered. For families who will be refusing/declining vaccines for their children, Kid Care Pediatrics will kindly refer families to the Tarrant County Medical Society (PH# 817 732-2825) to search for other medical practices in agreement with an anti-vaccine medical philosophy.
