Baby Vaccinations:  What to expect

Baby Vaccinations: What to expect

She may need booster shots a few years down the line (generally sometime between four and six years and again between the ages of 11 and 16), but for the most part, your child should have her vaccinations taken care of by the time she's two. That includes shots for:

  • Polio
  • Diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis
  • Measles, mumps, and rubella
  • Chicken pox
  • The pneumococcal disease
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hemophilus influenza type B
  • Hepatitis A (only for certain groups)

If your child still hasn't gotten all of her immunizations, mention it to your healthcare provider. Completing the regular vaccination schedule before age two is a national health goal and should be an individual priority as well.

Studies have shown over and over that there is no correlation between vaccines and autism. It is within the normal reactions to have a fever after some vaccines, however. Your best resource for information is your pediatrician. They can answer all your questions and explain the science behind vaccines. If you want to do online research first, use a reputable site such as cdc.gov or healthychildren.org

Great Information! There are so many! I have been told that breast feeding while they are getting their shots will help with the pain. I haven't tried it though.
