For Your Reference

Flu Vaccine in Pregnancy article

Below are the CDC’s recommended vaccine schedules; it’s always good to be aware of current recommendations:

Childhood immunizations from the CDC

Easy-to-Read 0-6 schedule (mentions pregnancy recommendations) from the CDC

Easy-to-Read 7-18 year schedule – if you have delayed baby or childhood vaccines and are considering selective vaccination, this can be useful to see which vaccines are still recommended for “catch up” into the teen years

Adult immunizations from the CDC
