Today, children in the United States routinely get vaccines that protect them from many diseases such as measles, polio, and tetanus. Most of these diseases are now at their lowest levels in history, thanks to years of immunization.

Vaccines help make you immune to serious diseases without first getting sick. Without a vaccine, you must actually get a disease in order to become immune to the germ that causes it. Vaccines work best when they are given at certain ages. For example, children don’t receive measles vaccine until they are at least one year old. If it is given earlier it might not work as well. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention publishes a schedule for childhood vaccines.

Although some of the vaccines you receive as a child provide protection for many years, adults need immunizations too.

The schedule listed below is one that will vary, but is a general guideline for parents. There are catch up schedules which are recommended and Dr. Saukin will discuss all of your concerns regarding vaccinations, missed injections, catch up schedules, and all further questions to ensure that a comfortable educated decision is made regarding how and when to give vaccinations to your child.

Below are links to which you can refer for further tables and questions to prepare you for your appointment.
