We support childhood vaccinations
In May of 2019, Governor Mills signed An Act to Protect Maine Children and Students from Preventable Diseases (LD 798) which goes into effect on September 1, 2021. This act eliminates religious and philosophical exemptions from Maine laws requiring routine childhood immunizations to attend educational and childcare facilities.
InterMed values the health and safety of our patients and community and believes that routine childhood immunizations safely and effectively protect individuals against preventable infectious diseases while also improving broader public health outcomes.
Considering the impact on patient and community well-being, InterMed supports the immunization recommendations set forth by the CDC and does not support nonmedical exemptions.
