Vaccination Schedule For Children

Traci Mitchell with NAHU discusses the importance of scheduling your child's immunizations.

Tracy Michele: Hi! I'm Tracy Michele with the National Association of Health Underwriters Education Foundation, today we're talking about the importance of vaccination schedules. One of the most important things you can do as a parent is that make sure your child gets the recommended immunizations.

The vaccines children receive today can have lasting benefits from their health as well as the health of everyone around them. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention outlines the vaccination schedule for children, before six months children should begin their first immunization series with a second series coming in their first year.

Make sure your child completes every series of shots as shot one shot may not be effective and can even be harmful, many vaccines such as tetanus require booster shots and every few years while others such as flu shots should be administered yearly.

To ensure your child is appropriately protected, keep a detailed record of vaccinations in your personal records. If you change pediatricians, ask that vaccination records be transferred to your new doctor. Some state immunization programs and schools keep a copy of vaccination records in a student's file, but do not depend on those sources, as many doctor's clinics, schools and public programs do not keep records for more than a few years. Your own files are likely to be your most complete and accurate resource.

If you have any questions or concerns about inoculations talk to your family healthcare provider and make sure you follow the recommended immunization plan for your child.
