Our position on 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.
Our Pediatrics department provides comprehensive care to newborns, children, and adolescents. Routine wellness visits form the cornerstone of our practice, from immunization to screening for developmental milestones and medical and psychiatric conditions.
Our vaccination rates are among the highest in Maine, as noted by the State and the insurance industry. The practice is also certified by Let’s Go!, a program aimed at reducing childhood obesity in Maine.
Our team has also been recognized by the American Academy of Pediatrics for InterMed’s efforts on the Childhood Asthma Collaborative.
We also perform physicals for school, athletics, and camp. Our pediatricians are exceptionally kid-friendly, warm, and approachable. Prenatal “meet and greet” appointments are available so that you can choose the InterMed pediatrician who is right for you.
