Did you ever wonder about the different types of vaccines and when your child should receive them?
The journal Pediatrics recently published an updated schedule of when children and adolescents should receive their immunizations. The schedule provides a timeline from 0 through 18 years of age and is designed to inform caregivers about a vaccine’s recommended age range, dosage, and catch-up age. To help caregivers better understand these recommendations, the Center for Disease Control published easy-to-read versions of the schedules here (birth-6 years) and here (7-18 years).
If you have any questions about your child’s immunization schedule, please speak with your child’s health care provider!
