I have decided at this time to do a few vax specifically DTaP and possibly MMR and Polio.
My questions: at his age he dosnt need any more HIB or Prevnar right?
He cut his foot this past Friday and got 7 stitches and at that time I agreed to him receiving the tetanus shot because he cut his foot in absolutely beyond nasty conditions and I wasnt willing to take the risk, they gave him TDaP at the ER (the Dr. was very clear on the fact he gave TDaP and not DTaP) I am pretty sure that he dosnt need any more DTaP until he is due for a booster does anyone know anything about that?
He had zero reaction not even a bit of pain with the TDaP which I am very thankful for since that is the one (DTaP) that my dd reacted really badly to) so if he needs more I am OK with him getting it but only want to do what I absolutely have to do.
I have looked at the CDC catch up schedule and it was helpful but I am still working on making choices right now and I know asking the Dr. would be useless since they would recommend he be given all them so I am asking here where I know you all have done a lost of research on this subject.
Edited to clarify about the TDaP at the ER
