01 Jan Vaccination Schedule chart
“Vaccination Schedule Recommended by Japan Pediatric Society”
Vaccination Catch-up Schedule as of January 15, 2017 (in Japanese)
Note： Making a Vaccination Plan
Recommended vaccinations start at 2 months of age. Individual planning is important. Ask your pediatrician or public health nurse to help you. If you plan to leave Japan in the near future, tell your doctor or nurse.
Vaccination with multiple vaccines does not change the rate of immunity acquisition
or risk of side effects.
Interchangeability of vaccine brands/products :
Please keep using the same product. If you change the brand of vaccine, vaccination may not result in effective immunity. However completion of the series of shots should be the priority.
