Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Vaccine Schedules, and More

WiseCare medical experts make it easy for you to review the CDC vaccine schedules here, download or print the PDFs. You are also encouraged to take the CDC vaccine quizzes and print your results to bring in with you during your next WiseCare medical appointment in either our Severna Park or Pasadena medical centers.

You can be assured all CDC vaccine content shown here is current. Whenever CDC makes a change, these links automatically display the most updated version of all vaccine schedules.

The CDC continually evaluates the safety of vaccines and updates their recommendations and vaccine schedules to make sure your child is protected. Here are the latest changes:

HPV: Kids who start the human papillomavirus (HPV) series before their 15th birthday now only need two doses of the vaccine instead of three. You can skip a trip to the doc—hooray!

Hepatitis B: Babies born to moms not infected with hepatitis B should get the first dose of the vaccine within their first 24 hours of life. Previously, healthy babies received the shot before hospital discharge, which could mean up to a few days.

Flu: The FluMist nasal spray version of the flu vaccine wasn’t recommended for kids for the 2016–17 flue season because research found it ineffective. This recommendation also applied to the 2017–18 flu season.

Infants and Children: What You Need to KnowVaccine Schedules

Some diseases that are prevented by vaccines, like pertussis (whooping cough) and chickenpox, remain common in the United States. On the other hand, other diseases are no longer common in this country because of vaccines. However, if we stopped vaccinating, even the few cases we have in the United States could very quickly become tens or hundreds of thousands of cases.

Ensure your baby gets her vaccines according to the CDC’s recommended schedule to give her the best protection against 14 serious diseases by age 2.
