Unsure how to go about with 6 month vaccinations and beyond.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My daughter is due for her 6 month check up & vaccinations pretty soon, however she has only had 2 vaccinations so far: her Hepatitis B shot at birth, and a DTaP shot at 4 months. She is very behind on her vaccinations, mainly due to fear after I read about how unnecessary the Hepatitis B shot was for her. I'm having a bit of a battle with myself now, as I do want her to be vaccinated for her protection, but I fear too many vaccinations at one time. I do not want her to continue to be unvaccinated however, I do not want her to get 8 catch up shots in one day. I was wondering what vaccination schedule you would recommend going forward? Thank you so much for your time, I really don't know what to do from here!

Hi - sorry to take so long to get back to you.  I'm curious what you've done in the meantime. I can't really lay out what you should do here.  In the new version of the vaccine book,  lay out some partial and some delayed vaccine schedule options that would help you sort this out.  You could start there, then let me know what you think you should do and I could comment on it.  But I can't lay this out for you here without having a two-way conversation.
