Immunization Schedule

Immunization Schedule for Our Office

Based upon the recommendations of the CDC’s Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), our physicians typically follow the immunization schedule in the table below. An individual patient’s immunization schedule may vary depending upon his or her clinical situation and other factors. The table below includes links to CDC Vaccine Information Statements (VIS) the first time each vaccine appears in the table. After the table, there are additional links to third-party websites containing information about immunizations which you may find helpful. You may download a PDF containing our typical checkup and immunization schedules.
