Childhood Vaccination Schedule
It's a schedule created by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, also known as the CDC
It shows which vaccines children need, the ages they can get them, and the number of shots they'll get
It’s designed to give children vaccines when they first have a chance of getting certain infections
Your child is more likely to get certain infections if you don't follow the recommended schedule. However, a slight delay usually won’t harm your child or make your child have to start over with the shots. If you have concerns about the recommended schedule, talk to your child’s doctor.
