What You Need to Know

Baby's Vaccines

Babies get six vaccines between birth and 6 months of age, which protect your baby from 8 serious diseases, including: Hepatitis B, Polio, Pneumococcal Disease, Diphtheria, Tetanus & Pertussis (DTP), Rotavirus, and HIB. These vaccines may be given separately, or some might be given together in the same shot (for example, Hepatitis B and Hib can begiven together, and so can DTaP, Polio and Hepatitis B). These “combination vaccines” are as safe and effective asthe individual vaccines, and mean fewer shots for your baby. These vaccines may all be given at the same visit. Getting several vaccines at the same time will not harm your baby.
