  • I wouldn't allow that much toxin into my child at one time. Call and ask your pediatrician.

  • Yes they will,, my sister's little girl was behind 7 shots, and she was not happy leaving the doctor that day.

  • You get to decide this. Do some research and talk with your doctor about it.

  • 15 and 18 month shots? unless you aren't on time, there aren't shots at 15 AND 18 months. you get set of shots BETWEEN 15-18 months. my son got his at 18 months, my dd got hers at 15 months, only because she was at a follow up appt from being sick weeks before, and since she was 15 months and we were already there, we went ahead and gave them to her. after that it's 24 months, then not till they're 4

  • My daughter will start getting shots at 2 and she will not get more than 2 at a time. It is your choice.

  • These shots have to be given 6 wks apart. Just had to get 15mnth shots late.

  • You are the parent and have the authority to control what they give your child at any visit, even if you are late. Just ask that they separate the shots by 2-4 weeks. It will require more driving and inconvenience on your part, but better for the health of the child.

  • They probably will unless you specify otherwise.
