- Diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough (pertussis) (DTaP) (3rd dose)
- Haemophilus influenzae type b disease (Hib) (3rd dose)
- Polio (IPV) (3rd dose)

What is the recommended vaccine schedule for babies?
Birth to 15 Months
|Vaccine||2 mos||4 mos|
|Rotavirus (RV) RV1 (2-dose series); RV5 (3-dose series)||1st dose||2nd dose|
|Diphtheria, tetanus, & acellular pertussis (DTaP: <7 yrs)||1st dose||2nd dose|

What are contraindications for immunizations?
A severe allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) to a vaccine component is a contraindication to any vaccine containing that component, and a severe allergy following a dose of vaccine is a contraindication to subsequent doses of that vaccine. Severe immunosuppression is a contraindication to live, attenuated vaccines.
What immunizations should be given at the 2 4 and 6 month intervals?
The routine schedule for administering DTaP to children is a 3-dose series at age 2, 4, and 6 months, followed by boosters at age 15–18 months and 4–6 years. The first booster may be given at age 12–15 months as long as there is an interval of at least 6 months from the preceding dose.
