DD has been on a catch-up schedule for the polio vaccine. The good news is that she has had all four doses. The bad news is that I think her doctor's office may have had it wrong. Here's what we did.
Doses 1-2: Waited one month.
Doses 2-3: Waited 1.5 months
Doses 3-4: Waited 1.5 months
Apparently, according to the CDC catch-up schedule, we were supposed to have waited 6 months between doses 3-4. Does anyone know the reasoning behind this sixth-month lapse? Is the vaccine somehow ineffective if we did it wrong, meaning that we have to do a FIFTH dose?
A nurse at the clinic gave me an email with a vax schedule, but I've since lost the hand-out (actually a print-out of an email that she sent to my doctor), and don't remember any mention of the sixth-month gap between those last doses. That and.....you'd think they'd have this catch-up schedule in my chart and should've said something.......right?
I'll call the office tomorrow, but sometimes I find that you people here are more on the ball, lol!
