My son has severe asthma .

Posted by   + Show Post

 I was very uneducated about vaccinations when i had my 1st 11 years ago... i gave my first son all his shots right on time... L(. My middle I did selective vaccination.. They have all expecpt hep b and the MMR. They are 3 and almost 5. My youngest has about 7 shots total and she is only 10 month. I stopped giving her shots when she turned 7 months. I will give her polio and hib.. before she is a year. To be honest i don't knwo what to believe.. that maybe i am damned if i do and damned if i don't... :(. Anyway, i am very firm on the shots i do not wish to give my children, but my childs doctor is pushing me so hard to give him his MMR and heb b shot because he has asthma.. i tell her I will, but i KNOW i won't. I believe the amount of shots my child got in his life time gave him asthma. I do not believe it's hereditary at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, any suggestions and advice would help alot. Thanks for your advice and opinions. I am really confused.

yes, it can be given under 18mos, starting at 12mos

just curious where you heard that misinformation



Who should get MMR vaccine

and when? 

Children should get 2 doses of MMRvaccine:

– First Dose: 12-15 months of age

Yes they did and it was 8 years ago.

MMR is not given to kids under 18 months. Even 8 years ago. If I was you I would get the records and sue that Dr.
