Here is information from the CDC - check with your child's doctor to see what she needs.  Hope this helps!

Immunization is one of the most important things a parent can do to protect their children’s health. Today, we can protect children younger than two years old from 14 serious diseases including:

Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) (bacterial meningitis)
Diphtheria
Hepatitis A
Hepatitis B
Influenza
Measles
Mumps
Pertussis (whooping cough)
Pneumococcal disease
Polio
Rubella (German measles)
Tetanus (lockjaw)
Rotavirus
Varicella (chickenpox)

At least one vaccine is needed for each of these diseases, and for some diseases several doses are required for the best protection. Several “combination vaccines” exist in which multiple vaccines are given in a single shot, reducing the number of shots needed.

Vaccines are safe and effective. Failure to vaccinate may mean putting children at risk for serious diseases. Find out if your infant or toddler is due for a vaccination.
