IMMUNIZATION BRANCH

When to get baby's immunizations​

Your child needs shots at birth, 2, 4, 6, 12, 15 and 18 months of age.  Immunizations are one of the greatest achievements of medicine. They have been so successful, many parents have never seen most of the illnesses and complications that vaccines prevent. But these diseases still exist. Vaccines have helped protect us against newer infections like COVID-19 too. Your child needs immunizations to be protected from preventable diseases. Immunize your child for a lifetime of health.
