Childhood Immunizations


Vaccination is one of the best ways parents can protect infants, children, and teens from 16 potentially harmful diseases. Vaccine-preventable diseases can be very serious, may require hospitalization, or even be deadly – especially in infants and young children.

Vaccinations and information about immunization schedules are available through your health care provider or Fairfax County Health Department clinics. IMPORTANT: Parents should bring the child's immunization record to the clinic.
