Childhood Immunizations: 2 Year-Old Children

Vaccines teach the immune system how to recognize and fight bacteria and viruses before an infection can occur. Vaccines provide protection without a child experiencing the complications of a disease. Some vaccines require only one dose, while others require several doses to provide complete protection.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) develops written recommendations for the routine administration of vaccines, along with schedules regarding the appropriate timing, dosage, and contraindications.
