What Are Immunization Schedules?

An immunization, also called a vaccination, is a way to keep you from getting a disease. The medicine causes your body to make antibodies that can then recognize and fight the illness if you are later exposed to it. Besides keeping you from getting sick, immunizations also help reduce the spread of disease to others and prevent epidemics.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) schedules are designed to work best with a child’s immune system at certain ages and at certain times. They are set up so that your child gets the best protection possible at the earliest age possible from the fewest shots possible.

What vaccines does your child need? Use the CDC Child and Adolescent Vaccine Assessment Tool.

Should Your Child Get Immunized?

Immunizations save lives. They are the best way to help protect your child from certain infectious diseases. They also help reduce the spread of disease to others and prevent epidemics.

Keeping Your Child's Immunization Records

It is important to keep accurate records of immunizations, including any reactions to the vaccines. When you enroll your child in day care or school, you may need to show proof of immunizations. And your child may need the record later in life for college, employment, or travel.

  • Know when each immunization should be scheduled.
    Put reminder notes on your calendar. You also may want to ask your doctor to send you notices when immunizations are due.
  • Be sure your records are accurate.
    Have your doctor go over your child’s immunization record with you during each office visit.
  • Keep your record in a safe place. Don’t throw it away.
    It is an important part of your child’s lifelong medical records.
