How Early can you Give a Baby Shots?

shots for children

We are planning on flying home to introduce our newborn to our families. We would like him to get his first set of vaccinations before traveling. How old does he need to be to get his 2 month old vaccines?

Children need to be at least 6 weeks old to get standard 2 month vaccinations (Dtap, IPV, Hib, Prevnar, Rotavirus). The hepatitis B vaccination can be given earlier. The initial hepatitis B vaccine can given at birth. The second hepatitis B can be give one month after the first.

It is best to get your son’s vaccines and then wait 2 - 3 days before traveling. While serious reactions are rare, many children are fussy after their vaccinations.
