The vaccine schedule is updated by the CDC yearly.

Notice in the chart below the differences in the vaccine schedule in 2018 as compared to 1983.

While most parents follow this schedule as recommended (e.g., median kindergarten vaccination coverage* is approximately 95%), medical and religious vaccine exemptions are under constant threat of being further minimized. 


In stark contrast to the high rate of vaccination among children, the CDC claims the vast majority of adults are not vaccinated, are under-vaccinated, or are no longer current. It may be of interest to note that children make up around 20% of the U.S. population; therefore, up to 80% of the population is not vaccinated and yet mass outbreaks of vaccine-targeted diseases have not occurred.

Safer Vaccination Tip

Prior to receiving a vaccine, and even prior to the appointment, you can review the ingredients list and package insert. At your appointment, consider documenting for your own records, the lot number of your vaccine, expiration date, any storage requirements and whether those have been met, the manufacturer and the manufacturing country of origin. If the vaccine is coming from a multi-dose vial, ask if the bottle has been properly shaken prior to each recipient and which recipient you are from that vial.
