National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases

The National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) is one of several centers that make up the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The mission of NCIRD is the prevention of disease, disability, and death through immunization and by control of respiratory and related diseases. NCIRD’s challenge is to effectively balance efforts in the domestic and global arenas as well as accommodate the specific needs of all populations, from children to older adults, at risk of vaccine preventable diseases. Vaccine-preventable disease levels in the United States are at or near record lows. While most infants and toddlers receive the recommended vaccines by age 2, many under-immunized children remain, leaving the potential for outbreaks of disease. Many adolescents and adults are under-immunized as well, missing opportunities to protect themselves against diseases such as Hepatitis B, influenza, and pneumococcal disease. CDC works closely with public health agencies and private partners to improve and sustain immunization coverage and to monitor the safety of vaccines so that this public health success story can be maintained and expanded in the century to come.

The School of Industrial Systems and Engineering

The H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE), one of eight degree-granting academic units in the College of Engineering at Georgia Tech, has achieved national and international prominence through its tradition of unparalleled excellence and leadership in research, education, and service. This distinction is due to ISyE's world-class faculty, top-notch students, outstanding curricula, and extensive research focusing on improving quality of life. ISyE’s sponsored research spans from fundamental to applied, with all research pursued in the spirit of serious scholarship. Whether pushing theoretical frontiers regarding what is known or knowable, or applying the power of our existing methodologies in domains involving real-world problems of societal and global concern, ISyE’s faculty is extremely research-active. Our graduates are technologically proficient and innovative, broadly knowledgeable with the ability to think systematically, and globally competent.

Disclaimer: This immunization schedule is based on the 2014 Childhood and Adolescent Immunization Schedule recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP). This schedule provides generally recommended dates for immunizations based on your child's birth date. Some diseases or treatments for disease affect the immune system. For children with these diseases or for children receiving these treatments, the recommended immunization schedule may need to be modified. If you have questions or concerns, consult your child's physician or other healthcare professional for advice about your child's immunization schedule.

QUALIFICATION: Some of the information in this application is supplied and tested by the CDC yearly. The vaccine recommendations follow the ACIP guidelines and vaccination schedule. GA Tech has used its best efforts to accurately portray immunization application, but cannot guarantee if it is outdated or incomplete. GA Tech and the CDC is not licensed to practice medicine or pharmacology, and this tool does not constitute such practice.
