Infant and Child Immunization

Protect your child against disease

Immunizations are an excellent way to protect your child against many childhood diseases.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Family Physicians and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases recommend a series of immunizations to protect your children against vaccine-preventable diseases.

Childhood Immunization Schedule

Recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). Some of these vaccines may be given in combination, meaning fewer shots. You should take your child's shot record EVERY time you visit your medical provider.
