Lifestage / 2 Months

2 Months

After leaving hospital, your baby’s first vaccinations are scheduled at two months of age. It is best to begin vaccinations early because diseases can be caught at any time and babies have not had time to develop immunity yet. At two months, your baby will receive two injections and one oral rotavirus vaccine.

These vaccinations are given to trigger the immune system to produce its own antibodies against the diseases listed on this page. This two month visit is the first in a series of vaccinations given at two, four and six months. These vaccinations should be recorded in your baby’s Personal Health Record.
