  • I skipped RotoTeq, Varicella, and Flu. I'm on the fence on the MMR I will probably wait until my son is at least 2. My daughter, however, did get the MMR.

  • Got them all done for all three. They all turned out fine too. Also if they don't have them all when school starts they will make you do them so you might as well get it done now.

  • Geminus, not sure if you know this, or even if you care, but your kids DO NOT need to be vaccinated to attend public school. There are waivers.

  • No I did not know that. If I had then my kid wouldn't have missed three days waiting to get in and get a shot. They said she couldn't come back if she didn't have them all. We live in Texas so I am not sure if that makes a difference.

  • We didn't do all the vaccines and we delayed the ones we did do. We also split up the MMR. We'll be skipping any flu vaccines and Gardasil too.

  • My kids get all theirs, and whenever our Dr. tells us they need them. If he didn't do them with his kids he wouldn't tell us to do them for ours. We know him really well and trust him.
