    Center for Disease Control: Recommended Vaccines by Age

    The Center for Disease Control schedule lays out what to stick in your baby and yourself.
    Birth starts with 1st of 3 part vaccine against Hepatitis B - why? good question.
    All babies should get the first shot of hepatitis B vaccine within first 12 hours after birth.

    "This shot acts as a safety net, reducing the risk of getting the disease from you or family members who may not know they are infected with hepatitis B.
    If you have hepatitis B, there’s additional medicine that can help protect your newborn against hepatitis B; it’s called hepatitis B immune globin (HBIG). HBIG gives your baby’s body extra help to fight the virus as soon as your baby is born."

    Would you think that the mother and father might know if they have Hep B?

    Causes of Hepatitis B

    Hepatitis B infection is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). The virus is passed from person to person through blood, semen or other body fluids. It does not spread by sneezing or coughing.
    Common ways that HBV can spread are:

    • Sexual contact. You may get hepatitis B if you have unprotected sex with someone who is infected. The virus can pass to you if the person's blood, saliva, semen or vaginal secretions enter your body.
    • Sharing of needles. HBV easily spreads through needles and syringes contaminated with infected blood. Sharing IV drug paraphernalia puts you at high risk of hepatitis B.
    • Accidental needle sticks. Hepatitis B is a concern for health care workers and anyone else who comes in contact with human blood.
    • Mother to child. Pregnant women infected with HBV can pass the virus to their babies during childbirth. However, the newborn can be vaccinated to avoid getting infected in almost all cases. Talk to your doctor about being tested for hepatitis B if you are pregnant or want to become pregnant.
    If neither mommy nor daddy is a needle-sharing junkie or having a lot of unprotected sex with various partners, WHY is EVERY newborn getting vaccinated against Hep B?

    Starting at 1 to 2 months of age, your baby receives the following vaccines to develop immunity from potentially harmful diseases:

    Stay on track with the recommended vaccine schedule.
    At 6 months of age, your baby receives the following vaccines to develop immunity from potentially harmful diseases:

    There are usually no vaccinations scheduled between 7 and 11 months of age. However, if your baby has missed an earlier vaccination, now is a good time to “catch up.”
    Babies 6 months and older should receive flu vaccination every flu season.

    By following the recommended schedule and fully immunizing your child by 2 years of age, your child should be protected against 14 vaccine preventable diseases.
    Between 12 and 23 months of age, your child receives the following vaccines to continue developing immunity from potentially harmful diseases:
    Chickenpox (Varicella)
    Diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough (pertussis) (DTaP)
    Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
    Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
    Polio (IPV) (between 6 through 18 months)
    Pneumococcal (PCV)
    Hepatitis A (HepA)
    Hepatitis B (HepB)

    HERE'S a color-coded chart to follow for adolescents vaccinations:

    Flu shots recommended EVERY YEAR starting at 6 months, so maybe 70 - 80 shots. That's 70-80 times more viruses than natural, PLUS THE ADJUVANTS. INJECTED into the body - NOT a natural process.

    All adults need a seasonal flu (influenza) vaccine every year. Flu vaccine is especially important for people with chronic health conditions, pregnant women, and older adults.Every adult should get the Tdap vaccine once if they did not receive it as an adolescent to protect against pertussis (whooping cough), and then a Td (tetanus, diphtheria) booster shot every 10 years. In addition, women should get the Tdap vaccine each time they are pregnant, preferably at 27 through 36 weeks.
    Healthy adults aged 50 years and older should get a zoster vaccine to prevent shingles and the complications from the disease.
    Some vaccines may be recommended for adults because of particular job or school-related requirements, health conditions, lifestyle or other factors.

    Are you current on your vaccine schedule?
