Cornerstone Vaccination Policy Update

The doctors at Cornerstone Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine are strong advocates of timely vaccination of all children. Cornerstone policy requires all patients under the age of 2 to be fully vaccinated against vaccine-preventable diseases prior to the patent’s 2nd birthday. Patents who are over 2 years old, and not fully vaccinated, must be fully vaccinated within 7 months. This grace period allows plenty of time to bring immunizations up to date.

This policy also applies to any children that may have been grandfathered in under the previous Vaccination Policy. This policy includes the following vaccines:

  • Hepatitis
  • Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTaP)
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
  • Polio
  • Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR)
  • Varicella
  • Pneumococcal conjugate (PCV)
  • Rotavirus
  • Tdap (at 11 years old)
  • Meningococcal (at 11 years old)
Documentation of all vaccinations must be provided to Cornerstone Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine. Failure to comply with this policy will result in the denial of healthcare services at Cornerstone Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, as well as possible exclusion from group settings, such as daycare or school, as required by North Carolina law.
Exemptions will only be granted for medical reasons, as determined and/or agreed to by a Cornerstone Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine physician. Religious and personal belief exemptions will not be granted.
