As an infant, 28 years ago, I had an allergy to the Pertussis vaccine. I am told I received the rest of the series without the "P".
Aside from my own beliefs that I most likely want to vaccinate on an alternate schedule, such as only one vaccine at a time after 2 mos, and delay vaccines usually given at the hospital (if they'll let me do this in RI, I swear I saw someplace that I can't), I'm wondering if my allergy to the vax has any part in this decision process?
Is it more likely that my baby would also have a reaction? I'm still not sure how they realized it was the "P" part of the vax that triggered my allergy (lasting high fever & extreme irritability), but my mom is a nurse so I trust that she followed through on everything.
I'm open to book recommendations as well. Anything published recently would be preferred, as I don't want to be referencing research that has been "debunked".
I've got What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations, Cave (2010) and The Vaccination Book: Making the Right Decision for Your Child, Sears (2011) bookmarked to order as soon as I get through a few more pregnancy books.
