How do you do a delayed immunization schedule?

I have a two month old son and although im not against giving the vaccinations i do not agree with giving all of the shots as they have recommended at one time. My question is how do you delay them, would that mean we would have to go back every month to get them all in if we do say two at a time? Anyone have experience w this?

  • Usually the vaccinations are done over an extended period of time, like every months or so forth. Talk to the pediatrician and explain what you want....
