Immunization Schedule for Infants and Children (birth through 6 years)
United States, 2018
This recommended schedule summarizes the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations for currently licensed vaccines for children birth through 6 years.
The recommended immunization schedule is designed to protect infants and children early in life, when they are most vulnerable and before they are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases.
Check the schedule for the age or age range when each vaccine or series of shots is recommended. Or create a personalized schedule that shows the recommended dates for your child. If your child has missed any shots, work with your child’s doctor to determine vaccination dates for the missed or skipped vaccines. If you have any questions please talk to your doctor.
