Well-Child Visits Immunization Schedule

Immunizations are important to keep your child healthy. Our recommended schedule below follows that of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Immunization schedules change from time to time. Your child’s pediatrician will notify you of any changes in the schedule or recommendations. Please bring your child’s immunization record to every visit in case dates need to be confirmed, new immunizations are needed, or your record needs to be updated.
