Depending on the timing, a child might receive up to six shots during one visit to the doctor....

How do you feel about this statement from the CDC. Who in the right mind would let a baby to have 6 shots at once?

  • I feel that its ludicrous.

    By the times I was 2 (in 1986) I had had ten innoculations. In 2009, by the time a child is two, s/he will have recieved 32.

    My DD has had maybe 12. She's 19 mos now, and I stopped vaxxing her at 6 mos. I did my research (and continue to do so)

  • I think it's population control. Vaccines kill.

    I'm not sure what do they mean by "depending on the timing". But I wouldn't let the doctors give 6 shots to my baby.

  • I have 3 kids who we choose to have vaccinated and NEVER had 6 shots at 1 time. That's ridiculous not to say it hasn't been done though.

  • I told my sons Dr. that he can have up to 2 shots at a time and no "3 in one" vaccines (they are separated out).....he is up to date on all of his shots and it takes a little bit of the worry out.
