Where to begin...My beautiful son just turned 4 and I am plagued (brought on by myself no less ) again with the question of whether to vax or not to vax. History to date is my son recv'd full vaxes until 2 months, then at the 4month visit I did IPV and HIB, and then at 5 months just the Dtap which I supplied myself as I read the Dtapacel - Sanofi-Pasteur was the one to go with. I then stopped all further vaxes. I took a mental break from the vaccine discussion in my head b/c quite honestly I was losing sleep over it and said to myself at age 4 (my son) I will start the research again thus the debate in my head! I feel weak and powerless and I dread the annual Pedi apt this Tuesday.
I have many questions but I don't want to annoy you all too much so my question is can we still split up the MMR as back in 2008 we could not as Merek was not profiting from the singles shots thus they were only putting out the full 3 vax shot. Is this still true today? If so do you feel at age 4 I should proceed with the shot(s)? Should I wait until 5 or 6? Should I think about another shot though I do not see any left that really jump out at me of any importance other then the fear it puts into my soul.
My motto that has gotten me through this far is "The risks out weigh the benefits" but again I said I would re-investigate this at age 4 which is why I am back here...THANK YOU in advance.
