Vaccines Your Baby Needs

Check with your immunization provider to make sure your baby is receiving all vaccinations on schedule. Many times vaccines are combined to reduce the number of injections. Be sure you ask for a record card with the dates of your baby’s vaccinations; bring this with you to every visit.

Please note: Your baby may not need a dose of Hib or RV vaccine at age 6 months, depending on the vaccine used. Check with your immunization provider.
