Under a new policy, a pediatric office in South Carolina does not accept patients who are not vaccinated and whose parents refuse to do so.
According to WMBF, CPG Pediatrics at Carolina Forest 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 are at very high risk of contracting vaccine-related illnesses seems completely inappropriate," said Dr. Marc Bahan.
The office believes this is necessary given the number of patients they care for who have weakened immune systems.
CPG Pediatrics officials said the new policy was in line with the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
