Note Children’s Immunization Schedule

It is important for your child to see a pediatrician regularly to keep up to date on immunizations. Immunizations begin at birth with Hepatitis B. The following is a schedule of important immunizations:

  • DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis)
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • HiB
  • MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
  • Pneumococcal
  • Polio
  • Rotavirus
  • Varicella

Immunization schedules vary depending on the type of vaccine used. Although schedules vary, immunizations are given at the time of well-child exams.

“Research has shown that the best way for us to control these diseases is to vaccinate our children,” says Gary S. Olson, MD, FAAP, FCP, pediatrician, Saint Francis Medical Partner.
