When should I get my baby immunized?


The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that premature babies receive immunizations at the same schedule and dose as full-term babies. For example, if your baby was premature, he should receive his first immunizations at 2 months chronological age (not corrected age).

It is very important to follow your baby's schedule for immunizations. They will be given when you see your baby's doctor.
