2010 Childhood Immunization Schedule Changes

While there were some changes in the 2010 childhood immunization schedule - http://www.aap.org/immunization/IZSchedule.html , these changes likely won't mean any extra shots for most kids.

One of the changes is that the immunization schedule now states that the use of combination vaccines is "preferred over separate injections," so this schedule may actually mean that your kids get fewer shots at each visit to the doctor. For example, at his two-month check-up, your infant might get the single Pentacel shot, instead of the separate DTaP, IPV, and Hib vaccines. The previous immunization schedule said that combination vaccines "may be used."
