When does my child gets shots/vaccines?

This may seem like an overwhelming topic with frequent visits to the pediatrician. The vaccine schedule we use comes directly from the CDC. This is very well researched plan to cover for a many vaccine preventable disease. The schedule is to get the most effect with the least risk.
