Recommended vaccines from birth to 15 months include hepatitis B, rotavirus, diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis, according to the CDC. Type B influenza, pneumococcal conjugate, pneumococcal polysaccharide and poliovirus are also recommended. The MMR, which stands for measles, mumps and rubella, vaccine is another recommendation, along with varicella, hepatitis A and HPV vaccines.

Additional vaccines for people ranging in age from 18 months to 18 years include boosters for some of the vaccines previously given. Some vaccines require up to five total doses to be completely protected, while others, such as the influenza vaccine, require an annual vaccination.
