When you have a child, they’re tiven the first of many vaccines. Ideally, by the time they’re five years old (ready for kindergarten), they’ll have received the following vaccines:
• all three hepatitis B vaccinations
• diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTaP) vaccine
• haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine (Hib)
• pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV)
• inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV)
• measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine
Many schools require proof that your child has been vaccinated, and might not admit your child if all of the vaccinations listed above haven’t been acquired via your physician. So, read up on the vaccines above, and know how important they are for every child.
