Protect your child through vaccination!
Your child’s growth should not be hindered by health problems. Therefore, it is important to get your kid vaccinated during their childhood for different life-altering diseases such as polio, hepatitis, measles and more.
For getting the child immunized at the right time, you need to maintain a schedule, and an immunization chart helps you in this regard.
MomJunction has come up with an easy-to-use Immunization Scheduler, which you can personalize. The best thing you can also download a printable version of the immunization schedule.
Enter your child’s birth date, and you will receive a personalized child immunization schedule from birth until they reach 12 years.
Child’s immunization chart will include the following vaccines –
|Type of vaccine||No of shots (dosages)|
|Hib||3 – 4 (depends on the brand)|
|Rotavirus||2 – 3 (depends on the brand)|

|Varicella (chicken pox)||2|
|HPV||2 – 3|
Some vaccines are optional but some are mandatory. But, as parents you might want to know if vaccines are good for your baby.
