Immunization

Immunization

Childhood vaccines offer protection from serious or potentially fatal diseases. Here's what you need to know to make sure your child's immunizations are up to date.

 

1. What vaccinations does my child need?

The vaccine schedule is designed to ensure that children receive vaccines at the optimal time to protect them from infectious diseases. The schedule may be updated every year to determine exactly which vaccines your child needs now, and which vaccines are coming up. Check with your primary health care provider, if you have any questions or concerns. If your child has health issues, such as HIV, or if you're planning to travel outside the country, talk to your health care provider about what your child may need to travel. 

 

2. How can I keep track of my child's vaccinations?

You can request an immunization card from your child's health care provider. Bring the card with you to all of your child's appointments.  

 

3. What if my child misses a vaccine?

If your child misses a dose of a vaccine, ask your child's health care provider about catch-up vaccine schedule.
