Vaccines Your Child Needs: Immunization Schedule Resources for Parents
The recommended immunization schedule protects infants and children by providing immunity early in life, before they come into contact with potentially life-threatening diseases. Use the recommended immunization schedule and CDC’s tools to learn what vaccines your child needs and when, and to keep track as they grow.
Check the schedule to see when each vaccine or series of shots is recommended for your baby. If your baby has missed any shots, talk with your child’s doctor to get them caught up on the recommended vaccines.
Once you know which vaccines your child needs, keep track with CDC’s Immunization Tracker. Print out the Milestones TrackerCdc-pdf, write in your child’s previous vaccines, and take it to each of your child’s doctor visits. If you need help finding records of which vaccines your child has gotten or want to know more about vaccine record keeping, see Childhood Vaccines Records and Requirements.
