WHAT VACCINES WILL MY 7-10 YEAR OLD GET?
-Influenza (Flu)

VACCINE YOUR CHILD MAY HAVE MISSED:
Find your child’s personal immunization record and bring it to your appointment. An up-to-date record tells your doctor exactly what shots your child has already received.
If your child missed a vaccine, now is a good time for your child to catch up. Make an appointment for your child to get caught up if they haven’t received vaccines to protect against any of the following diseases:
-Tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough (pertussis) (Tdap)
-Hepatitis A (HepA)
-Hepatitis B (HepB)
-Polio (IPV)
-Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
-Chickenpox (Varicella)
