Immunizations Schedule: What to Know

Vaccines help to protect the body from dangerous diseases. Vaccines also help to prevent disease spread and protect the immunocompromised. Getting vaccinated causes an antibody response, which protects you without causing illness. Vaccines, also known as immunizations, have the potential to save billions of lives. That is why Dr. Dana Stewart takes it upon herself to educate the parents of her pediatric patients about the safety of vaccines and the importance of adhering to a proper schedule.

Immunizations Schedule: What to Know

At Meadows Medical Center, Dr. Dana Stewart follows the immunization guidelines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that children receive their first vaccine once born (hepatitis B). From then on, Dr. Stewart recommends you bring your child in at regular intervals until they reach the age of 18. Dr. Stewart will then provide you with a detailed schedule to follow in Kokomo, IN, for immunizations. A vaccination schedule is a sequence of vaccines that includes scheduling doses of each, recommended or required depending on where you live. We offer the following immunizations in our Kokomo, IN, office. We've also listed the age at which a physician suggests the dose.

  • Influenza (Flu) - two months
  • Hepatitis B (HepB) - at birth
  • Human papillomavirus - for children ages nine and older
  • Measles (MMR) - 12 months
  • Meningitis (MenACWY/MenB) - 11 years
