Get Your Child’s Shots on Schedule 


Take Action!

Protect your child from serious childhood diseases by making sure she gets all recommended shots.

Find out which shots your child needs.
Check with your doctor to make sure your child is getting all the recommended shots. If your child is age 6 or younger, find out which shots your child still needs.

Get your child a seasonal flu shot every year.
Everyone age 6 months and older needs to get the seasonal flu vaccine every year.

What about cost?
The Affordable Care Act, the health care reform law passed in 2010, covers recommended shots for kids. Depending on your insurance plan, you may be able to get your child’s shots at no cost to you.

Check with your insurance provider to find out what’s included in your plan. For information about other services covered by the Affordable Care Act, visit

If you don’t have health insurance, you can still get important shots for your child.
