Immunization schedule for children (0-6) years old
Immunization schedule for adolescents, preteens, and teens (7-18 years old)
- There are several relatively new vaccines for adolescents. We encourage parents to get their adolescents vaccinated with Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and accellular pertussis), meningococcal, and HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccines beginning at age 11 or 12.
Immunization schedule for adults (19 years and older)
- Adults over 60 years-old should be vaccinated for shingles and this vaccine is available at JCHD.
- Who is recommended to get a pneumonia shot?
The above referenced immunization schedules are correct for the general population. Be aware that in some situations, people who are immunocompromised or have other serious health conditions may need to follow different guidelines or be vaccinated more frequently. Spacing of vaccine doses around receipt of blood transfusions, immunglobulins, or chemotherapy agents may also require special consideration.
