These schedules indicate the recommended ages for routine administration of currently licensed childhood vaccines, for children through the age of (18).

 

How do I care for my child after his or her immunizations?

You should receive a VIS for each vaccine given. These statements should be read before any shots are given. Please ask the nurse if you have any questions about any of the VIS's. You will also receive an information sheet called: "After the Shots". This sheet will explain how to reduce the possible side effects of the immunizations.. More.

 

Are vaccines safe, and how can I get more information?

Yes, vaccines are safe. There are many resources available on the internet about vaccines, some is based in science, while others are very misleading. Anyone can put together a website, and because rumors and misinformation travel so quickly on the information uperhighway, it is important to use critical thinking skills when researching immunization information on the internet.
