At 12 months they should get the MMR (measles, mumps & rubella), Meningcoccal C Conjugate, Varicella (chicken pox) & Pneumococcal. That's 4 shots. Your lo should have already gotten shots for Hep B. I don't know about Hep A. You might want to call your doc and ask. Choosing to get all the 12 months shots is a personal decision. I plan on doing so because my ds will be going into daycare at the time and all these viruses are highly contagious. Some people, from what I've read on this site, have opted to wait until their lo is older and then give them their MMR shot. I don't know how that would affect the shots they get at 18 months. It's something you may want to talk to your doc about to get more feedback or research on the web yourself. GL!
