Pediatrics at Columbia Medical Practice follows the immunization guidelines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. 

Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults.  According to the AAP, vaccinations have reduced the number of infections from vaccine-preventable diseases by more than 90%.

Making sure your child receives immunizations when scheduled is the best way to help protect your child and the community from potentially fatal diseases.  

Recommended Immunization Schedule:

  • 0-18 years:   Schedule for Infants to children age Birth to 18
  • Catch-up Schedule:  Schedule for age 4 months to 18 yrs old who started late or are more than 1 month behind.
  • COVID-19 Vaccine availability
    • CDC-approved for 12+ yo
    • Future: Once approved for 5+ yo

We are happy to discuss your questions and concerns about vaccines during your child’s visit to the office.
