  • My son started his at two months and so did all of the other newborns I know (that's about five other babies since I stay in touch with everyone from my birthclass, plus my sister in law).

  • Your child probably got their first vax at the hospital. Hep B shot, which is totally not needed for a baby. It's a sexually transmitted disease and wears off in 7-10 years. The next ones should be at a couple of MONTHS old. Before you do this, I urge you to study vaccines. They have serious side effects, arthritis - which is what I got, seizures, death...just to name a few. Contact me if you want more info.

    And yes, children can get into school without vaccines.

  • if you are pro vax wait until your child is 2 years before you get them vaccinated. That way it allows their brain and body to develope to handle all the toxins.

    Doctors give shots because they get paid to give shots. Their knowlegde is based on outdated text books. If you talk to a chiropractor who is a DR they will say no vaccinatations as well as Naturopathic Doctor=no vaxes. Dr Mercola also says no vaccines.

    If you want unbiased info. come to the group educate before you vaccinate or choosing not to vaccinate.

  • depends on the vax. when they are newborn they get vit k and hep b. Normally at 2 months they get their 1st set of shots. I think they are too soon so if you baby is only a couple weeks old definitely too soon. Delay as long as you can and educate before you vaccinate.

  • My kids got theirs at 2 months. I think two weeks is too early. I guess it depends on the doctor.
