One in four children in the U.S. is not fully immunized. Is yours?
According to the recommended immunization schedule, children may receive up to 24 vaccinations to protect them from up to 14 diseases, many of which are required in order to attend daycare and kindergarten. (For more information on the importance of receiving these vaccines according to the schedule, please visit our page on the importance of timing.)
In order to help you keep track of all the vaccines your child needs, Vaccinate Your Baby has created an application that can be downloaded to either your computer or smart phone that will automatically generate a customized schedule for children up to the age of 6 and send you reminders when it’s time to schedule your child’s next doctor’s appointment.
We know it can be hard to help children understand why they need vaccines at the doctor. That’s why Vaccinate Your Baby has created a bookmark and coloring book filled with fun zoo animals to explain the purpose for immunizations.
To print this bookmark:
- Standard letter-sized paper (8.5" x 11") is recommended for printing this bookmark. For best results, we recommend using cardstock instead of regular printer paper.
- Set your printer to print in color if possible.
- Set your printer to print double-sided. This may require you to place the sheet of paper back into the printer. Please follow the instructions your printer provides.
