How fast can I get him caught up?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
DS is not vaccinated at all. I had planned to wait until 2 to start. He is 18 months and we just got an assinment to Japan (DH is military). I have been looking in all the regulations to find a way in unvaccinated. I have read a few stories of it working, but it all seems to be a giant struggle. I thought today I might as well just start early, but we are leaving in 6 months, but actually need the vax's done within ASAP to get the final orders. If I started vaxing this week, how fast can he get all of them done? Does anyone know if it would be harmful to cluster them together, like between 3 visits and 4 months? Is this even a crazy idea? I am so lost and scared he will go and we will have to stay behind I would appreciate any advice or links maybe?

That would be so hard on his system to give them that fast It is hard from what I have read about the military but it can be done. I would really look into it before bombarding your ds's little body with all that stuff.

You would have to do multiple shots each time and if he where to have a reaction you would have no way of knowing which one caused it.

please read this thread...esp post #3. You do not have to vax to go to Japan. If you do not want to do this then fight it!!

My SIL is Japanese and my brother is military. They chose not to vaccinate their children until they were nearly 2. A large part of each of their early years were spent on okinawa.
They used the base for medical care and nothing was said to them
