I have not allowed ds any vaccination to date except the DTaP. He got his first DTaP shot a couple days ago. No side effects besides the bruise (and a lot of crying).
My question is why the "catch up" schedule for DTaP is a shot one month apart for the first three shots rather than two months apart like the infant schedule.
Does anyone recommend anything different than shots one or two months apart? I would prefer three months apart if the efficacy is not affected... but I have not seen any studies to validate that idea.
