  • 2, 4,6 months, then at a year, then 2 then 4. the 9 month checkup is just to look at them and catch up on vaccines in case they missed one. the 9 month isn't even really necessary, just precaution.

  • I vote never. My kids are both 100% vaccine free and very very healthy.

  • its your choice to get them or not however daycares require up to date shot records. Call your dr. for what they suggest

  • it's up to you. some people decide not to get shots for their kids. you will have to do a lot of research (online should do) to find out the risks and benefits of shots, and then talk to your doctor about it. most doctors will say you should get shots, and will have their recommended schedule, but you can decide not to if you want.

  • Never......

    books: Vaccines: Are They Safe & Effective by Neil Z Miller, The Hundred Year Lie by Randall Fitzgerald, How to Raise a Healthy Child...in Spite of Your Doctor by Dr Robert Mendelsohn

    site:
    Vaccine Ingredients used-yuck>> from CDC themselves http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/excipient-table-2.pdf

    No matter anyone says-they can not force you-every state has at least ONE exemption

    ……….. and yes your child can go to school etc. (check for your state here) http://www.nvic.org/Vaccine-Laws/state-vaccine-requirements.aspx

  • JocelynsMama1:

    Actually, my DD is in daycare and not vaccinated. I signed an exemption form, and I will do the same for public school, should she not be homeschooled. Every state offers exemption.
