Childhood Immunizations

Protect infants and children with vaccinations early in life, when they are most vulnerable and before they are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases. Vaccinations are available through your health care provider or Fairfax County Health Department clinics. For your convenience, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Childhood Immunization Schedule is provided below.

Important Information for Parents

  • Bring your child's immunization record and insurance card to the clinic. If your immunization records are not in English, please seek the assistance of an appropriate translator to translate your record. Without an immunization record in English, your child may need to restart his or her immunization series. How do I find my child's immunization record?
  • Prepare your child for a clinic visit. Get tips to help make your child's clinic visit go well.

Other Information

  • Required School Immunizations: Documentation of immunization is required for children entering kindergarten, sixth grade, and new students transferring into Fairfax County Public Schools. Learn more about required school immunizations.
  • Prevent Whooping Cough: CDC is promoting the "Born with Protection" campaign. This campaign encourages pregnant women to get the whooping cough (Tdap) vaccine in the third trimester of every pregnancy. The Fairfax County Health Department is currently offering free Tdap vaccine for adults 19 years and older.
