About Your Child's Immunization Schedule

As per the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) & the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations (see 2012 Immunization Schedule), we at Island Coast Pediatrics have revamped our schedule for immunizations.  Some vaccines are moved to a different schedule while other combination vaccines are given in lieu of  2 or 3 vaccines given individually. Also, new vaccines are added as they are recommended by the AAP.

The new vaccines are as follows:

     Hepatitis A (series of 2 beginning at age 1 year old)

     Rotavirus Vaccine (series of 3 given at 2, 4, and 6 months of age)

     Human Papillomavirus Vaccine (series of 3 for children of age 12 years old

        and above)

     Meningococcal Vaccine (a single dose beginning at age 11 years old and a

        booster dose around 16 to 18 years old)

Also, new recommendations of booster vaccines:

     Booster vaccine for Varicella/Chickenpox (a single booster dose at 4 years old

        or  older)

     Booster vaccine for Pertussis given thru Tdap (at 17 years old or older)

Our immunization schedule (as in the AAP recommened schedule) serves as a guide  and remains to be flexible and subject to change depending on your child's age, your child's past immunization history and your child's clinical status at the time of your visit.  For more information, feel free to ask any questions during your vist at our office.
