    This is the recommended schedule.  They should also give you a hard copy at the hospital.

  • Hepatitis B -- first shot at the hospital, second at the one month visit. Nothing else until two months.

  • At birth babies are given Hepatitis B, and an injection of Vitamin K (this one is not a vaccine, but used to prevent neonatal hemorrhage).

    It's also important to ask your OB (if you're still pregnant), because not ALL docs give Hep B at birth. Some start at two months. When our 23 month old was born, our OB didn't give them at birth as their available Hep B vaccine was a part of a combo vax. They now have it as a single dose and offer it at birth.

  • Ok. I fully vax on the recommended schedule. At birth he got a hep b. Nothing else till 2 months when he got another Hep b, the drinkable rotavirus, dtap, hib, polio, and pneumococcal. If you want any of the other months, feel free to message me :)

  • Wanted to tag on to Milfalicious08' comment.
    I think it depends on the hospital? Because my OB told me it had nothing to do w/ her it was up to the hospital and the ped. Regardless I had to sign a paper stating either yes or no on the Hep B vaccine in the hospital. I declined and the PED offered again at his check up 3 days later.

  • I really want to encourage you to look into the Hep B vaccine.
