  • My kids both got one injection in the hospital at birth and a booster and a second vacc. at 2 months. It is a safety issue. they have to a) be old enough to handle the vacc. b) They have to have time between vacc before they can be boostered so as not to overload the system. I'm not an expert so there may be other reasons but those seem to be the big ones.

  • My kids got their first shots at 1 month... And they had a blood test thing done where they take a drop of blood from their heel at about 1 week...

    Find a new ped?

  • You don't need a new ped, it's just the standard.

  • We started at 12 months, with single dose preservative free vaccines; one shot per office visit and we always read the insert before allowing a shot to be given.
