What is the schedule for my child to receive immunizations?

Health Minute

There are routine vaccines that protect children from diseases. To keep your child healthy, have him or her vaccinated (immunized) against diseases. Many vaccinations are given in a series of doses. To be protected, your child needs each dose at the right time. Vaccines may cause mild side effects.

As your child grows older, consult your primary care provider for information about the appropriate booster shots he/she should receive.
