The Autism Alliance of Michigan (AAoM) supports current United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) vaccination guidelines for both routine childhood immunizations and the COVID-19 vaccination. AAoM recommends children and adults be vaccinated accordingly. This recommendation is based on the most up-to-date, scientific information supported by sound research studies. We also rely on expert medical input from some of Michigan’s top physicians who serve on the AAoM Medical Advisory Board. The Autism Alliance of Michigan understands that the decision to vaccinate is both an intellectual and emotional one and recommends families contact their trusted primary care physician/pediatrician for additional counsel as needed. When you make the decision to vaccinate, contact an AAOM Navigator to inquire about supports and strategies for successful vaccination and assistance in locating a convenient vaccination site.
