  • We just finished ours up last week. Just in time for school registration.

  • Yes. All of my kids have been vaccinated on schedule since they were born.

  • Yes, of course. I wouldn't consider putting my kids, or anyone else at risk, by not vaccinating them.

  • Yes,every single shot. Only one my ds didn't get was the chicken pox vaccine, but that's because he had them before he was 1.

  • Yes they are up to date but the school district put another requirement in this year so even though he is not due at the doc till September I have to bring him in next week to get another one

  • Yep, but that last MMR was brutal on my son.

  • The state makes those requirements. It isn't the fault of the school district.

    Answer by Marwill at 12:47 PM on Jan. 28, 2011

  • Yes, my Son's shots are all up-to-date.

  • We delay until age 2 and only do one vaccine at a time, but our children do get mandated vaccines before starting school. They do not, however, get flu shots or vaccines that are neither required nor neccessary. I had never had chicken pox, so when my children were vaccinated their pediatrician said I should be vaccinated to, and he did it for me. Worst thing I ever did! And it kind of made me wish I had skipped that one for my kids too. I was so sick for 3 weeks after that vaccine. I was in the hospital for 9 days of it.
