We're here for you!
From routine checkups and immunizations to complex medical care, Glendale Pediatrics is equipped to help navigate all of your child's medical needs. We provide care for patients from birth through 22 years of age. Our greatest professional achievement is our patients' continued good health.

We also administer PPD tests (Tuberculosis Skin Tests). Please note that you must be able to bring your child back to our office 48-72 hours later to have the PPD read by one of our staff members.
Facilities and Equipment
In non-pandemic times, we have sick and well waiting rooms with separate entrances. We also have a "Back Door" entrance for patients who may have contagious illnesses. We have a treatment room to use for minor procedures and surgeries.
We believe immunizing your child is the most important step you can take to avoid preventable infectious diseases of childhood. We endorse the current schedule of vaccines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Committee on Immunization Practices, and the United States Centers for Disease Control. This schedule and answers to many commonly asked vaccine questions can be viewed at the following websites.
Although the schedule may vary depending on medical need, our routine schedule is as follows:
- Birth - Hepatitis B #1
- 2 months - DTaP/IPV/Hib #1, Hep B #2, PCV13 #1, Rotavirus #1
- 4 months - DTaP/IPV/Hib #2, PCV13 #2 , Rotavirus #2
- 6 months - DTaP/IPV/Hib #3, Hep B #3, PCV13 #3, Rotavirus #3
At 12 months and after, the schedule may vary slightly:
- 12 months - MMR, Varicella, Hepatitis A #1
- 15 months - Hib #4 (or DTaP/IPV/Hib #4), PCV #4
- 18 months - Hep A #2, DTaP #4
- 4 years - MMR #2, DTaP/IPV
- 5 years - Varicella #2
- 11 years - Tdap, Meningitis MCV-4 #1
- 11 years or older - HPV #1-2 (or 3 doses if started after 15)
- 16 - 18 years - Meningitis MCV-4 #2
- pre-college - Meningitis serotype B #1-2
We strongly recommend influenza vaccine for all children 6 months and older. The first time your 9-year old or younger child receives the influenza vaccine, the vaccine is given twice, one month apart. We offer preservative-free, quadrivalent injectable flu vaccine and live, attenuated nasal flu vaccine, usually beginning in September. We are working toward being able to administer the COVID vaccine.
Office Vaccine Policy
After considerable discussion amongst the physicians of Glendale Pediatrics, we have made the decision to require our eligible patients to receive two vaccinations: DTaP and MMR. We did not come to this decision lightly. While we have close bonds with our patients, we also have a responsibility to protect every single person who walks through our door from vaccine-preventable diseases. This especially includes those who cannot be vaccinated due to young age or complex medical conditions. These patients rely on us to provide the safest possible environment for their medical care, and we must do everything possible to ensure that standard.
We understand that this policy may generate questions. Our physicians are well-equipped to discuss any questions that you may have, so please feel free to ask them.
