Is it normal now a days for pedis to give Hepititas B shots to infants?
So the other day, my parents came over to hang with us. My SO mentioned how Sam (our 3 month old) received shots on the 28th of September (just so happened to be when he turned 3 months).
My SO was listing off the type of shots Sam received and one of them was the Hepititas B shot.
My parents started telling us how they shouldn't have given that to Sam. How it's not healthy to give to infants and they inject a little of the Hep B in babies which means that it's in their system which means that they now have Hep B which means that they can get sick from it.
We told them that I don't think that the doctors would give him something if they knew it was harmful to the baby.
My mom told me to do some research on it to see if it's safe or not.
Sam gets a series of shots (which most infants get) and the next sets of shots he receives is when he's 6 months old, I think.
question is is this normal? I'm asking you because my parents are over
protective when it comes to their grandchildren so they tend to over
react to things that may seem minor.
When he goes for his next shots should I tell his doctor that I don't want him to get the Hep B shots or is it to late to deny the shots because the Hep B is all ready in his system?
