Immunization Schedule

The AAP believes that vaccines are one of the most successful medical advances of all time, but understands that parents may have questions about vaccines and their children. AAP is not able to provide information regarding individual children and their medical conditions, but the following resources are provided as background for a dialogue with your child's pediatrician.

The AAP just launched a new communication area on its Web site. Please take a minute to view the new site and give us your feedback!

The 2011 Recommended Childhood and Adolescent Immunization Schedules were approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Academy of Family Physicians and are now available below.
