Frequently Asked Immunization Questions
How many shots will my child receive?
Each child is different, with many factors to consider before the decision is made to immunize your child. Schedules from the ACIP are the official federal recommendations for the use of vaccines and immune globulins in the United States and are published by the CDC. 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 Vaccine Information Statement (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.

Are vaccines safe?
Yes, vaccines are safe. Extensive testing is done before vaccines become available to the public, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other federal agencies continue routine monitoring and investigate any potential safety concerns.
To learn more about vaccine safety, see the CDC's vaccine safety information for parents and caregivers and safety information by vaccine.
