Immunization Schedule?

Does anyone have or know where I can find the suggested immunization schedule? For example at 6 weeks they get ________ shot, at 6 months they get __________shot, etc? My son has been to 3 different doctors because of moving and insurance reasons. When I went to pick up his immunization record for his Pre-K registration it didn't look right. I think some are missing and he was vaxed on schedule. I would like to compare his record to what the suggestions are and how many doses of each that he needs. Thanks.

  • By age 5 they should have:

    5 DTap
    4 hib
    4 polio
    4 Prevnar
    3 Hep B
    2 MMR
    2 Varicella

    You can check the CDC to verify accuracy.

  • Is it the same state to state? Or do different states vary?

    I don't know off hand because I delayed and selective vaxed, although by the age of 5 all are up to date. I just don't like the earliness and closeness of the "schedule"

  • I live in Georgia. I'm not sure if it is different from state to state. I think there is different requirements for pre-k but I am looking for the over all immunization schedule.

  • The truth is their are a few different scheduals. Different doctor follow different ones ask your current physian to give you a copy of their injection scheadual he will be able to tell if your son got all the doeses. Some doctors just don't break down vacinations as much as others.

  • This is the CDC schedule, the traditional one. THIS is the one that's recommended, every state is the same. Dr's may be different, but not generally.

    The normal schedule is:
    Birth- hep b
    2 months- hep b, rotavirus, dtap, hib, PCV, IPV
    4 months- rota, dtap, hib, pcv, ipv
    6 months- hep b, dtap, hib(if not done at 2 or 4mos), pcv
    12 months- heb b, hib, pcv, ipv, flu, mmr, vericella, hep a
    15 months- heb b, dtap, hib, pcv, ipv, flu, mmr, vericella,
    18 months- heb b, dtap, ipv, flu, hep a,
    19-24 months- flu (yearly)
    4-6 years- dtap, ipv, flu, mmr, vericella.

  • By the way Hep A and Prevnar (PCV) and flu are all optional vaccines that they don't need to go to school but are recommended.
