April 23 - 30, 2011 is National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) and the month of May is Toddler Immunization Month (TIM). These celebrations put a spotlight on the importance of immunizations for infants and young children and are a great time to get your child caught up with any needed immunizations.
  •  Doctors recommend that infants and children get a flu vaccine every year and other immunizations at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months, 15 months and 18 months of age. If your child has fallen behind, it’s not too late to get up to date. Confirm today whether your child is due to receive any recommended immunizations.

  • The diseases that immunizations prevent can be serious, especially for infants and young children. In 2010, in Los Angeles County, four infants died from whooping cough, which is also known as pertussis.


  • Learn the facts about immunizations- they are safe, effective, and do not cause autism.
  • Learn why other families choose to have their children immunized and share why YOU choose immunizations for your family.

Your child’s regular health care provider is your best resource for immunizations.
If your child does not have regular health care provider or health insurance, visit or dial the Los Angeles County Information Line at 2-1-1 to find a provider that offers no-cost or low-cost immunizations near you.
