  • Make sure you're taking him in to vaccinate based on your beliefs, not something that someone else is forcing you to do. If you have to, do some research, check and see what is in each vaccination and make sure you're 100% positive that you do want to vaccinate. I have never vaccinated my 20 month old dd and she is healthier than all the other kids in the family who do vaccinate.

    But if in the end you do decide to go ahead with it, I agree with doing it slowly.

  • i think your doing the right thing. theres alot less diseases spread in this world because of vaccinations.
    talk to your DR about it.

  • do it slowly. how old is your son? space them out every 3months like they normally do or even longer.

  • I waited til my daughter was 6 months old and only select vaccinations. It isnt too late, but I would try not to do too many at one time. It has been proven that too many at one time can be harmful.

  • Didn't your pedi recommend them in the first place? Ours did and said she also vaccinated her child, so we trusted her advice and had also read up a lot about the perks of vaccinations.
