    Shaded box indicates that the vaccine can
be given during the age range covered.
     

a. Children 2 years old and older with certain medical conditions may need a dose of pneumococcal vaccine (PPSV) and meningococcal vaccine (MCV4). See vaccine-specific recommendations at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/ACIP-list.htm.
b. Two doses given at least four weeks apart are recommended for children aged 6 months through 8 years of age who are getting a flu vaccine for the first time.
c. Two doses of HepA vaccine are needed for lasting protection. The first dose of HepA vaccine should be given between 12 months and 23 months of age. The second dose should be given 6 to 18 months later. HepA vaccination may be given to any child 12 months and older to protect against HepA. Children and adolescents who did not receive the HepA vaccine and are at high-risk, should be vaccinated against HepA.


Note: Don't start over if shots are missed; just go back to the doctor for the next shot.  Talk with your doctor if you have any questions.
