HORRY COUNTY, South Carolina – CPG Pediatrics at Carolina Forest will not take patients who refuse to vaccinate.
It's part of a new policy.
CPG Pediatrics says the policy was put in place for the safety of its patients.
"If unvaccinated children come to a pediatric office where many children have a very high risk of contracting vaccine-related diseases, it does not seem inappropriate," said Dr. Marc Bahan with CPG Pediatrics for WMBF.  CPG Pediatrics officials said the new policy is in line with the guidance of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
