At Phoenix Children’s Pediatrics, we highly encourage parents to follow the Recommended Child and Adolescent Immunization Schedule approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians and the CDC. These vaccines protect children from life-threatening illnesses.
Please note: some vaccines may require multiple doses over a period of time. If a vaccine is missed, speak with your child’s health care provider to determine how to safely catch up. Also, immunization schedules may vary slightly for children with medical conditions that put them at risk for infections or adverse reactions, or if traveling outside the United States.
Your child’s health care provider will outline the vaccine schedule that best meets your child’s individual needs.
