Safeguarding Your Child's Health: Recommended Vaccines Immunizations from Birth Through 6 Years Old

Immunizations are a vital part of your child's healthcare. They protect your child from serious diseases by stimulating their immune system to recognize and fight off these diseases. Here are the recommended immunizations for children from birth through 6 years old:

1. **Hepatitis B (HepB)**: The first dose is given at birth, followed by additional doses at 1-2 months and 6-18 months.

2. **Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTaP)**: This is a series of five shots given at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 15-18 months, and 4-6 years.

3. **Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)**: This vaccine is given at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, and 12-15 months.

4. **Polio (IPV)**: This vaccine is given at 2 months, 4 months, 6-18 months, and 4-6 years.

5. **Pneumococcal (PCV13)**: This vaccine is given at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, and 12-15 months.

6. **Rotavirus (RV)**: This vaccine is given at 2 months and 4 months.

7. **Influenza (Flu)**: The flu vaccine is recommended annually for children 6 months and older.

8. **Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR)**: This vaccine is given at 12-15 months and 4-6 years.
