  • We did a selective, delayed schedule, with single dose preservative free vaccines. She had one vax per office visit and had the first one past her second birthday. She never had a reaction.

  • So far my daughter has only gotten the 2 and 4 month shots and after each time about 4 hours later she got REALLY cranky and then slept. After waking, she was back to her normal happy self.
