Shots (Immunizations)

Protect your children with the right immunizations or shots

Shots protect your child against serious diseases. They’re given at different ages in order to work better. Your child’s PCP will let you know when your child’s shots are due.  You can also check the schedule of shots by age group.

Your child should get shots during a well-child check-up.  Call your child's PCP to see if your child is due for a shot. Your PCP can give you a shot record to help you keep track. Be sure to take the shot card with you when you visit.

For more information and for the current immunization schedule, visit the National Immunization Program website.

Shots are a good way to keep your child healthy. Shots help protect your child from many bad diseases like whooping cough and measles.
