It’s best to immunize your baby at the earliest recommended age. Infants are more likely than older children to become ill or even hospitalized from the diseases that vaccines prevent. Your baby can be immunized even if he is taking antibiotics or has minor illness such as a cold, diarrhea, or a fever. Vaccines will still be effective and will not make him sicker.
Until your baby is old enough to get vaccinated against flu, chickenpox, and measles, be sure those in close contact with him are immunized.
