In brief: Yes
At 15-18 months, the boosters for dtap (diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough), hib (hemophilus meningitis), pneumo (meningitis, pneumonia), polio (paralyzing disease) are all needed.
Measles and chicken pox vaccines are given unless the child has a suppressed or defective immune system. These serious childhood infections are preventable by vaccines. Some doctors give hepatitis a vaccine at 18 mon.

In brief: What do you want?
There are vaccinations recommended at fifteen to eighteen months of age.
I am interested in what parents are concerned about with vaccines and in discussing what is the best course of action for your child. An altered or reduced schedule may be indicated for your child and that is open for discussion.
