HORRY COUNTY, South Carolina – CPG Pediatrics at Carolina Forest will not take patients who refuse to be vaccinated.
This is part of a new policy.
CPG Pediatrics said the policy had been put in place for the safety of its patients.
"The fact that unvaccinated children go to a pediatric office where many children have a very high risk of contracting vaccine-related illnesses seems completely inappropriate," said Dr. Marc Bahan of CPG Pediatrics at WMBF. .
CPG Pediatrics officials said the new policy was in line with the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
