  • We just went a week ago and he had 4 shots. It really was hard for me to watch though. I think he took it better than i did.

  • My son only got 1. It was also his hearing and vision check.

  • I think it all depends on the Doctor. My sons Dr. does not mix vaccinations any longer so they know exactly how much of what is being given. So some may give one, but my son got 4 different ones. Poor guy!

  • None, we don't vaccinate :)
    You really should get like one at a time though. Imagine your body trying to fight off just one of those diseases, let alone like 3 or 4 at a single time. Think about it.

  • At 4? There are no routine shots at 4 years of age here in IN. (And I thought this was a national chart?)

    We selectively vaccinate, but when I took my son in for his 4-yr checkup, there were no shots on the agenda. Just normal physical checkup.
