At Joy & Crown, your child’s health and safety are our top priority. . . . , and so is the health and safety of all of our patients, including those with not-so-healthy immune systems. That is why Joy & Crown is committed to keeping all our patients’ immunizations up to date in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control recommendations.

At the same time, Dr. Cavalier realizes that immunizations can be frightening for both children and parents alike. In response, Joy & Crown employs a number of techniques to maintain vaccine safety, to help your child feel at ease, and to minimize his or her discomfort. Furthermore, because ‘knowledge is power,’ Joy & Crown endeavors to partner with moms and dads so that they can feel confident with their child’s immunization plan of care. Dr. Cavalier takes the time to explain what vaccines are needed, when they are needed, and why. She also endeavors to keep parents well-informed about what signs and symptoms they need to be on the lookout for after their little one has received immunizations.

Vaccine Policy:

  • We firmly believe in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives
  • We firmly believe in the safety of our vaccines
  • We firmly believe that all children and young adults should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics
  • We firmly believe, based on all available literature, evidence, and current studies, that vaccines do not cause autism or other developmental disabilities
  • We firmly believe that thimerosal, a preservative that has been in vaccines for decades and remains in some vaccines, does not cause autism or other developmental disabilities
  • We firmly believe that vaccinating children and young adults may be the single most important health-promoting intervention we perform as health care providers, and that you can perform as parents/caregivers
