Pediatric Care & Childhood Vaccines
Keeping our community healthy starts with healthy kids, and here at Swan Mountain, that is one of our highest priorities. Part of keeping children in best health includes vaccination, which we are now happy to offer at Swan Mountain.
Dr. Julie McKenzie is experienced in providing pediatric care to infants, children, and teens. Some of the services she provides are in-hospital newborn care, circumcision, well-child visits, and parent education. We also provide up-to-date immunization and acute care.

When to go straight to Urgent Care/ER:
Childhood vaccinations are necessary to keep your children safe from multiple, dangerous, and deadly diseases. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American Academy of Pediatrics encourage parents to follow the recommended vaccination schedule for their child, covering 16 different diseases, including diphtheria, polio, and tetanus.
Experts designed the schedule of child vaccines to work with children’s immune systems at specific ages. You can find the vaccine schedules here.
We offer the following vaccines:
You can find information about each of these vaccines here.
After your child’s immunization, they may experience side effects such as soreness, low grade fever, or swelling at the injection site. These are common effects of getting childhood vaccines. If concerned, always call the on-call provider for Swan Mountain.
***Please note that our clinic can only vaccinate privately insured patients as we do not participate in federally funded vaccine programs (i.e. VFC program and the like).
Dr. McKenzie is happy to see all patients in office, regardless of insurance, but Public health will be providing vaccines for Medicaid, non-insured and other state/federally funded vaccine programs.
