I don't know much about this but I heard that for some vaccines you can check for titers and if your child is immune, he will not need another does of the vaccine. Can you check for titers on all vaccines or just certain ones? Also, my doctor mentioned that insurance companies do not like to pay for these tests because it's cheaper to just give another shot. Will doctors do the test even if we have to pay out of pocket for it? I'd rather pay extra and have my child get less shots.
Does anyone have experience doing this? Were you able to skip shots by doing the tests? If the test shows he's immune does the state accept this for school entry?
Thanks for any help with all of this!
