In the first four months after a child is born, there are a number of immunizations that are recommended to be administered by doctors. There are further vaccinations that children should receive as they grow older, but the immunizations received in the first four months are considered particularly important in order to keep children safe from serious diseases.
Generally, at birth a Hepatitis B vaccination is administered. In those first four months, however, children are also recommended to receive vaccinations against rotavirus, diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, pneumococcus, and polio, among a few others. Later on, vaccinations against influenza, measles, and chickenpox are also frequently administered by medical professionals.
