VACCINES AT 12 TO 23 MONTHS
Between 12 and 23 months of age, your baby should receive vaccines to protect them from the following diseases:
-Chickenpox (Varicella) (1st dose)
-Diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough (pertussis) (DTaP) (4th dose)
-Haemophilus influenzae type b disease (Hib) (4th dose)
-Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) (1st dose)
-Polio (IPV) (3rd dose)
-Pneumococcal disease (PCV13) (4th dose)
-Hepatitis A (HepA) (1st dose)
-Hepatitis B (HepB) (3rd dose between 6 months and 18 months)
-Influenza (Flu) (every year)
Sometimes children have mild reactions from vaccines, such as pain at the injection site, a rash, or a fever. These reactions are normal and will soon go away.
-Read the Vaccine Information Sheet(s) your child’s doctor gave you to learn about side effects your child may experience.
-Offer breastmilk and liquids more often. It is normal for some children to eat less during the 24 hours after getting vaccines.
-Pay extra attention to your child for a few days. If you see something that concerns you, call your child’s doctor.
