About
The American Accademy of Pediatrics (AAP) is advising parents to stop giving fruit juice to children in the first year of life, saying the drink is not as healthful as many parents think. Click here for more info and age-group recommendations for fruit juice.
In most cases, your school district will need your child's immunization record for registration. You can obtain this through your child's patient portal account, or by calling us. If you don't have a portal account yet, please call our office to obtain an activation code. Your child's school will also require proof of your child's last well visit. If your child has not had a well visit within the last year, you will need to schedule one by calling our office or scheduling on the patient portal. Keep in mind JDC will not schedule a well visit for your child until at least a year has passed from the previous one. If you need documentation of your child's last well visit, please call us or send us a note through the portal.
Previously the HPV vaccine was given as a 3-dose series for all eligible-aged children. Now only 2 doses are recommended for children age 9 through 14, with the doses separated by at least 6 months. Children who begin HPV vaccination at 15 years of age and older will still need 3 doses. We will send a reminder call to you when your child is due for their next dose.
With the approach of summer and all of its activities, there may be forms your child will need completed. Click here to find out what you will need to do.
JDC now has the Meningitis B vaccine available. This vaccine is different from the previous meningococcal vaccine your child received at age 11, protecting against different strains of this bacteria. Click here to read more about protecting your child from this serious illness.

Our Doctors


James E. Jones, MD (Retired)


Dr. Jones is one of the founding members of JDC Pediatrics. He graduated with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School of Business at University of Pennsylvania and then spent two years in the Air Force. Deciding on a career in medicine, he went back to University of Pennsylvania to attend medical school. He was an intern and pediatric resident at Polyclinic Hospital in Harrisburg and a pediatric resident at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia.

Dr. Jones worked his magic at JDC with children and young adults as a general pediatrician for 35 years, retiring in 1998. During his years at JDC, he also worked at the Cystic Fibrosis Center, many of them as the director. Always thinking ahead and not one to be idle, he had a hand in reactivating the local Harrisburg-Hershey Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility and helped start the Children's Check-up Center in Harrisburg, which is still up and running today. He was also a member of the Peace Committee at his church.

Dr. Jones was hugely responsible for shaping JDC into what it is today, and he is still missed by both staff and his former patients, who now have children of their own who are patients of JDC.
