First, make a chart with four columns. Label them BIRTH, 2mo, 4mo, and 6mo. In each column, you will have 1 vaccination, 6 vaccinations, 5, and 6 respectively. (I just remember 1,6,5,6).
The only vaccine at birth is HEP B. At two months, you get Hep B, IPV, Dtap, Pneumo, Rota, and Hib (6 vaccines). 4 months, you get all of them except Hep B (5 vaccines). 6 months you get all of them, just remember Hep B and IPV can range anywhere from 618 months (6 vaccines at 6 months, plus remembering the ranges for Hep B and IPV...this is why I write them first!)
Hopefully that made sense.
Now I remember the letters H,P,M,D (I remember this by saying Hewlett Packard, M.D. (as in doctor) haha.
Hib 1215 months
Pneumo 1218 mo
MMR 1218 mo
Dtap 1518 mo
I remember the numbers by saying that the first three have 12's on the right side, last three have 18's on the left side, and 15s in the corners.
Now for 46years I remember DIM (as in Dtap, IPV, and MMR).
Hopefully that helps, I know it seems like a lot but definitely better than just trying to memorize!Last edit by sm06902 on May 26, '12 : Reason: correction
