Children's Immunizations
Introduction
Vaccines are an important part of preventing disease.  Before vaccines existed, many children died each year from diseases such as polio, whooping cough, or measles.  Through the introduction of routine vaccinations, many of these diseases are becoming rare in the United States, though they still exist and can easily spread among unvaccinated people.

Infants, children, and teenagers may need different vaccinations throughout their childhood.  It is best to consult with your child's healthcare provider to determine exactly which vaccines your child may need. The Immunization Coalition can also help you determine whether your child is up-to-date with all recommended vaccinations.

To learn more about the diseases that can be prevented by vaccines, please visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
