Japanese Vaccination Schedule

A few mothers asked me about the differences in the US and Japanese Vaccination Schedules. I hope this post helps clarify the issue. Click on the links below for the U.S. and Japanese Immunization/Vaccination Schedules. The immunization price list for Dr. Kurosu at Primary Care Tokyo in Shimokitazawa is listed at the bottom of the post (The fee for immunizations in Japan vary by doctor. Please ask your pediatrician for a copy of their price list).
