Preparing students for the new school year involves more than buying supplies and new clothes. All school districts require students be vaccinated for certain illnesses.

The Centers for Disease Control has designed a website that provides a handy, printable list of vaccines each child should have. They even broke it down by age. For children up to six years old, the list is pretty long; from the mumps and measles vaccine, to the flu shot, the inoculation schedule can get confusing. And when children become pre-teens and teenagers, the HPV vaccine, meningitis vaccine and a tetanus shot are essential, but there are additional vaccines recommended for this age group.

The CDC has it all organized. CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE COMPLETE, PRINTABLE LIST.

The CDC urges everyone to try to stick to these vaccine schedules in order to keep certain illnesses under control in the U.S.
