Shots (immunizations)

Protect your children with the right immunizations and shots

Shots protect your child against serious diseases. They are given at different ages in order to work better. Your child’s PCP will let you know when your child’s shots are due.  You can also check the schedule of shots by age group.

Your child should get shots during a well-child check-up. Call your child's PCP to see if your child needs shots. Keep track of your child's shots by using a shot record and take it with you to each provider visit.

Shots are a good way to keep your child healthy. Shots help protect your child from many bad diseases like whooping cough and measles. For more information and for the current immunization schedule, visit the National Immunization Program.
