The Center for Disease Control (CDC) offers a Parents Guide to Childhood Immunization. this can be ordered free of cost or may be downloaded and printed. It is produced by the National Immunization Program. Find more information at http://www2.aap.org/immunization/

To help families with the cost of vaccines, the Utah Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program has been established. Low-cost or no-cost vaccines are available for qualified individuals from birth through age 18. Families can receive these vaccines at any local public health department, community health center or participating provider.
