Please check with your health care provider for the recommended schedule.
Allina immunization schedule
Your child's immunization schedule
Immunization (vaccination) is a way to trigger your immune system and prevent serious, life-threatening diseases.
Read more about immunizations in our health encyclopedia.
To avoid awkward sentences, instead of referring to your child as "he/she" or "him/her," this guide will alternate between "he" or she" and "him" or "her."
