Immunization Guidelines: Who Should Get What and When

June 21, 2021, 4:36 p.m.

Protecting your health begins with making sure you are up-to-date on all vaccinations. Doing this allows you to reduce the chances of suffering from illness or becoming ill from a preventable or curable disease. Vaccinations are the best way to protect yourself, and others, from disease. At Burke Primary Care, we follow all CDC guidelines for vaccination schedules for children and adults.

In order to assist our patients with understanding what vaccines may be due for themselves or for their families, we’ve put together charts, based on the CDC guidelines, to help explain which vaccine should be given, at what intervals, and how often.

Current Burke Primary Care patients may also check their records in our patient portal.

If you have any questions about yourself or your children being up-to-date on vaccinations, you should reach out to our office to speak with our team. Another great time to discuss any questions or concerns is during your annual well check appointment. Seeing your provider regularly helps ensure you're in the best of health. Make sure you schedule, and keep, regular check-up appointments with your doctor so that you get all the recommended vaccinations. These prevent serious illnesses like chicken pox, tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough).
