share your delayed/selective vax schedule here - Page 3

post #41 of 191
DD is 5.5 months old now.

2.5 months - DTaP1, Hib1
5.5 months - DTaP2, Hib 2, possibly prevnar 1
7.5 months - prevnar 2 if #1 given
9 months - DTaP3, Hib 3
12 months - IPV 1, possibly Hep B1
15 months - DTaP4/Hib 4
18 months - Hep B2/IPV2
24 months - Hep B3
36 months - MMR1
42 months - IPV3,
48 months -MMR 2
60 months - CP

thats as far as I've gotten, and I just made it up. It will probably change quite a bit as time goes on.

mangosink0, if you're only planning on doing 4 DTaP's, then you should do the last one after the 4th birthday. Otherwise, many states will require you to have a 5th dose, since many states will only accept less than 5 if the last dose was on or after the 4th birhday. You also might want to check titres before doing the CP vax, because subclinical infection isn't uncommon.

My sons were pretty much on schedule. My daughter had a reaction to DTaP at 2 months and we didn't do any shots for quite a while. She was born Oct. 4, 1999.

Her schedule went like this:

Dec. 13, 1999: DTaP 1 (The one she reacted to.), HIB 1, IPV 1, HepB 1 (Hib and HepB were given as "Comvax")

Nov. 14, 2001
: Measles

Dec. 19, 2001
: Mumps

Jan. 22, 2002
: Rubella

Jan, 23, 2002
: DT #2

Feb. 19, 2002: Hib #2

March, 19, 2002
: DT# 3

June 24, 2002
: DT #4, Hep. B #2, IPV #2, Varicella #1

Sept. 26, 2002
: Hep. B #3, IPV #3

Oct. 16, 2003
: DT #5, IPV #4, MMR #2 (M, M and R given singly previously w/o problem)

Oct. 31, 2003
: Influenza (1/2 dose)

Dec. 6, 2003
: Influenza (1/2 dose)

She's had a yearly Influenza shot in the fall (usually during her yearly check-up) since. Other than her reaction to the pertussis vax, she never had any reaction to her shots other than a sore leg or arm. Her older brother, however, tended to sleep quite a bit the afternoon of the shots when he was a small baby.

Tell me if there's something obvious here that I could cut out and still vax (obviously if I didn't want to vax, I wouldn't). I am both trying to minimize the number of doses and the number of individual shots w/o sacrificing immunity.

I would cut out prevnar because it's not even required for school entry here in MA, I'm not sure what your state requirements are though. If you aren't putting your child in daycare or preschool HiB may not be required either, here it is for those things but not for Kindergarten entry. And, for me, with those two, they're not things I was vaxed for--so the combo of not being required, and I didn't get them, make them easy for me to pass up.

We followed it up to 12 months, then I got smart about vax's. We gave Prevnar (it seemed safe, he'd had it before with no reaction, and DH has almost died from pneumonia a few times) and HiB (read it was least reactive). We outright declinced MMR, Varicella, and Hep A and will not give our kids any of these, unless they get up towards their teen years and have yet to contract them. Those are very mild, easily treatable diseases, and contracting them provides lifelong immunity that wont wear off.

My schedule for dd #1 was:

HBIG and Hep B vax at birth (I'm Hep B positive)

Hep B at 2 months

Hep B at 6 months (they got sneaky and did a combo shot, so she received a Hib vax as well). :

If I hadn't placed my second baby for adoption, I would have done the HBIG and Hep B at birth only with no other follow up doses.

No other vax ever seemed worth it (I don't really think the Hep B was worth it either, I just wasn't given much of a choice legally) and at this point I have no plans to give her any more in the future.

This is what we've done thus far. We're unsure what we'll do with the MMR. We're talking about breaking them up. We won't be doing varicella or Hep B until age 5. Even then, I'm iffy about them both.

2 mo: Prevnar 1, DTap 1, Hib 1
4 mo: Prevnar 2, DTap 2, Hib 2
6 mo: Prevnar 3, DTap 3
12 mo: Hib 3, IPV 1

ok, so I did do the prevnar 1 this week, so now I have to change things all around. Also I'm considering going ahead and getting IPV 1 and maybe hep B 1 sooner rather than later. Does anyone know how much protection one dose of IPV and Hep B offer??

2.5 months - DTaP1, Hib1
5.5 months - DTaP2, Hib 2, prevnar 1
6.5 months - IPV 1, possibly hep B1 or may skip this visit
9 months - DTaP3, Hib 3, prevnar 2
12 months - IPV 2
15 months - DTaP4/Hib 4
18 months - Hep B2/IPV2
24 months - Hep B3
36 months - MMR1
42 months - IPV3,
48 months -MMR 2
60 months - CP

You can't really measure it in degrees like that. Either they protect or they don't. Almost no one has immunity to polio or Hep B after 1 dose of vaccine.

well I am so glad to have found this thread... I have been trrying to research this issue and am coming up empty handed and was given a boost to check out this webforum... I am loving it so far...

my ? today is : is there a place that gives detailed info on what each of the vax are for/do... I mean I am familiar with the basics but wonder if theres more info out there...im in CA if that makes a difference
it's driving me batty tying to sift through it all:

http://www.cdc.gov/nip/publications/..._pink_full.htm

That is the link to the CDC Pink Book. It contains a chapter on each of the recommended vaccines and the related illnesses.

If you're going minimalist, I'd skip Hep B. It's a blood borne illness, and unless you yourself have Hep B, the chances of a small child contracting it are very, very slim.

great! thanks for the feedback/link!

At 3 yrs, we began by giving the first doses of dpt and polio. A few months later, we did the second doses, and a few mths after that we did the 3rd. I want to say that we had to get one more dose of dpt, but I'm not entirely sure, but I do know that if you get the last shots after age 4, you don't have to get as many (of those 2 vaxes).

Several mths later, we got the first dose of MMR. Then, about 6 mths later, we got the second MMR. Then, just before Kindergarten started, we got Varicella and the first dose of hep b.

In our state, hib and prevnar are not required for entrance to school, and I believe that over age 4, the CDC doesn't even recommend them. (Though I do recall some talk of requiring prevnar for middle school, but it's been a while and since we don't do that vax, I haven't paid attention.)
post #56 of 191

share delayed vax schedules?

I've read Dr. Sears. I've also read Mendelsohn. I just fnished Murphy's What every parent shoudl know about childhood Immunization

I'm looking for other delayed vax schedules... just for comparison's sake. Anyone willing to share what they did and when?

post #58 of 191
My schedule changes with every appointment and as I do more research and become more/less comfortable with certain vaxes:

Here's my latest

2.5 months - DTaP1, Hib1
5.5 months - DTaP2, Hib 2, prevnar 1
7.5 months - DTaP3, prevnar 2
9.5 months - probably nothing but may start IPV or hepB if we decide to vax for those
15 months - DTaP4/Hib 3


That's all I'm saying right now because the rest is very likely to change. I know I won't do MMR until at least 2 and CP until at least 2 if I do it at all.

Thanks so much for sharing everyone!! This gives me some ideas for a schedule for my babe. I love this site

We're putting off Hep B and skipping Varicella and Prevnar. DD is 15 mos. and she's had polio, DTaP, and HiB. She's due for one more of each. I've been doing the polio and HiB together and the DTaP a few weeks later. I was going to have her get the polio and HiB at 15 mos. but she was sick so I didn't. I'll have her get them at 18 mos. and the DTaP a month or so later. At 2 I'll start w/ the MMR broken up with at least a month in between shots. I'll probably have her get Hep B when she's around 12 or so.

I read "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations" by Stephanie Cave. We're doing a modified version of her suggestions.
