The schedule on the next page is for healthy children without existing medical conditions. If your child has a medical condition that puts him/ her at higher risk, talk with your doctor about when to immunize.

If your child misses a vaccination, you don't need to start over – just go back to your child's doctor for the next shot.

HPV for girls and boys

Both girls and boys should receive HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccine starting at age 11 or 12. HPV vaccine protects against cervical cancer in girls and testicular and other cancers in boys. It is part of an “adolescent platform” of vaccines that the CDC and American Academy of Pediatrics recommend. Other vaccines in the trio are TdaP, to protect against tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis, and MCV4, to guard against meningitis.

“COCOONING”

first 6 months

Babies in the first 6 months of life, despite being vaccinated, are at risk of contracting pertussis (whooping cough). The Academy of Pediatrics is a proponent of “cocooning.” This means that everyone around the baby – parents, siblings, grandparents, friends, and caregivers – is immunized. Immunized kids and adults are less likely to spread pertussis to the baby, especially important in the early months when babies are not yet fully protected.
