2 month vaccinations..

my son had his vaccinations today :( i was really hesitant to get them done so early, but i ended up just having them give 5 separate vaccinations instead of the HUGE combo vaccine. my office had them ALL combined into one, and then the rotovirus drink. that's insane. i figure if there's a chance of any type of adverse effect, autism especially, why risk it. what route did you guys take? to vaccinate or not to vaccinate?

  • I'm confused. Didn't she get all the shots anyway? What's wrong with less needles?

  • the combo vaccinations contain mercury..so i went the separate route just in case.

  • we get them. there is no scientific evidence showing a connection to autism, no matter the hype. doctors really want kids to get their vaccinations, they don't want cerrtain diseases shwoing back up over a false theory of the autism thing.

  • missbreezy that's ultimately why i decided to get them. i don't believe 100% either way if it would cause autism or not, but if theres a possible link between mercury and autism..i figured why take the chance. i do want him to be safe and protected. and i'm certainly not judging anyone who chooses differently, to each their own. just curious to see what others have decided :)

  • My son is vaccinated. Up until now he has gotten like 4 or 5 at a time during each visit. After his 2 month vaccines he ran a fever for close to a month and a half after his vaccines. He ended up being hospitalized because they were trying to find the cause of the fevers but never did. After his 4 month vaccines he ran a high fever again for about 2 or 3 weeks. I made the connection to the vaccines and for his 6 month vaccines, I asked them to be split up so he did not get more than 2 at a time. He received 2 at his first visit about 3 - 4 weeks later he had rest of them. He did fine- no fevers! I am a believer in vaccination because I don't think there is enough solid proof to support the autistic theory but I do know that there is a link to mercury. If you request single dose vials be used for your child's vaccinations, that cuts down on mercury content BIG TIME.
