Protect the Health of Your Child.
Young children are most vulnerable to serious illnessess and diseases. Newborns receive some natural immunity from their mother, but it quickly fades. That is why it is very important to protect the health of your young child by making sure they receive all their immunizations on time.
The good news is that immunizations work. Most of us have never seen anyone with polio, diphtheria, or other vaccine-preventable diseases thanks to the protection vaccines provide. When a vaccine is introduced and widely used, the disease often fades quickly.
The recommended immunization schedule has grown over the last several years, including vaccines to protect against more childhood diseases. Your young child is routinely immunized against 14 diseases.
- Diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTaP)
- Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
- Hepatitis A (hep A)
- Hepatitis B (hep B)
- Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR)
- Pneumococcal (PCV13)
- Polio (IPV)
- Seasonal influenza (flu)
- Varicella (chickenpox)
Certain high-risk toddlers will be vaccinated with:
- Meningococcal conjugate (MCV4)
- Pneumococcal polysaccharide (PPSV23)
