After getting approval from several expert groups, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the following immunization schedules:
- Childhood Immunization Schedule: Ages 0 to 6 Years
- Childhood Immunization Schedule: Ages 7 to 18 Years
- Adults ages 19 years and older
Each year, the CDC reviews the immunization schedules for children and adults and makes new ones as needed.
Go to the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/child-adolescent.html#binational to see what vaccines are needed for children who got some shots in Mexico but now get shots in the U.S.
Note: Throughout the year, the CDC may update its recommendations or make new ones. Go to www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd-vac/default.htm for the most current information on each immunization.
