I appreciate any info anyone can give me. I have a 6 year old who i stopped vaccinating at around 6-9 months. He had a very scary reaction to the dtap, which he had 2 doses of. (the reaction was most likely to the P component, says the doc)
Now, I am a single mom, and he is in grandparents care a lot while i work and go to school. He is outdoors a lot, and just joined cub scouts. I have worries about proper wound care. Like driving myself crazy, worries.
If I were to get the tetanus vax, I would NOT want the dtap. I believe there is a TD available?, or what about just a T for a 6 year old? And would my ped have access to it or be able to order this vaccine for me? Also, at this point how many doses would he need to be fully protected from T?
I am asking you all, because most doctors and nurses are not willing to help me out when it comes to answers to these types of questions. Thank you!
