skyblufig...Thanks for explaining! I love that at least 2 of your kids didn't freak about the needle. If you were getting the older kids the DTaP to try to prevent the little one's asthma, I am curious why you spaced them so far apart for the older kids? Nov-July is a huge space in between doses, since they don't seem to get any (albeit poor) pertussis coverage until at least 3 doses. Not questioning, just really curious.
No problem! That is a long time, and it's mostly because we have in place an effective means to stop the asthma attacks relatively quickly at home now. The older two had classes when the youngest went for his annual checkup, so they're just going to get theirs when they go for their own. They will most likely all get their third doses in October.
