Infant Immunization

Immunization is one of the best ways parents can protect their infants and young children from potentially serious diseases. Over the years, immunization has saved millions of lives. Today, we can protect children younger than two years old from 14 serious diseases:

  • Bacterial Meningitis

  • Diphtheria

  • Hepatitis A

  • Hepatitis B

  • Influenza

  • Measles

  • Mumps

  • Pertussis (whooping cough)

  • Pneumococcal disease

  • Polio

  • Rubella (German measles)

  • Tetanus (lockjaw)

  • Rotavirus

  • Varicella (chickenpox)

If your baby is in need of an immunization, call 410-887-2705 to schedule an appointment.

International Travel

Certain vaccines are recommended to protect travelers from illnesses present in other parts of the world and to prevent the importation of infectious diseases across international borders. Which vaccinations you need depends on a number of factors including your destination, whether you will be spending time in rural areas, the season of the year you are traveling, your age, health status, and previous immunizations. To receive vaccines for international travel, contact the agencies below.
