CDC-recommended routine vaccinations from birth to age 18

If you’re like me, you might be showing up blurry-eyed and exhausted to your newborn’s countless doctor appointments, just hoping you remembered to wear pants. Keeping track of what vaccines the pediatrician will ask you about can seem like a nearly impossible task.

Now, you don’t have to. I made a handy list for you here.

(If it’s more accessible for you, check out these posts on my Instagram page and save them so you have them always ready in your app!)

Keep in mind that these use the recommended schedule as of June 2021 for a baby with no medical conditions. Some children benefit from additional vaccines or vaccines administered sooner or later than these recommendations. These pictures are just meant to be an initial starting point for your consideration (and a handy resource if you’re running into a checkup with no idea what’s on the agenda for discussion that day). Talk to your doctor if you have questions about what vaccines or vaccine timelines you should consider for your child.
