It is vitally important that all parents understand that vaccines offer safe and effective protection from infectious diseases. Are your children up-to-date?
The following 2012 Recommended Immunization Schedules list the age or age range when each vaccine or series of shots is recommended. If your child or adolescent has missed any shots, consult the catch-up schedule AND check with your child's pediatrician about getting back on track.
These schedules have been approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Academy of Family Physicians.
