Vaccines

Vaccines (immunizations) can prevent many diseases, but there are many considerations including risk of side effects.   We are happy to discuss the risks and benefits of any vaccine or any questions you may have.  Many people are looking for a "vaccine-friendly" or "anti vaccine-friendly" doctor, but finding a doctor who will accept patients who do not vaccinate or who partially vaccinate is hard.  While we generally advise getting the recommended vaccines, we support your right to choose what vaccines to get and when for yourself or your children.  

 

We carry most common vaccines in stock (see prices); most others can be special-ordered.  Special-ordered vaccines must be pre-paid.  Simply call us at 281-259-7400 to order vaccines or for any questions.

 

Below are some additional options for getting vaccines for those unable to afford them: 

  • TOMAGWA Health Care Ministries in Tomball provides low-cost vaccines to children who don't have insurance
  • Montgomery Health Department can provide vaccines for all ages (located in Conroe)
  • Many clinics offer vaccines free or for an administration fee through the Vaccines for Children program--a program in which the government provides vaccines to clinics at no direct cost.  (So as not to be entangled with government regulations and oversight, we do not participate with this program.)
