What your Dr. may not tell you about your child's vaccinations

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does anyone happen to have the delayed schedule from the book "What Your Dr. May Not Tell You About Your Child's Vaccinations"?

If so, could you please post it here?

Thanks in advance.

I'd be seriously peeved if someone responded to my question by just telling me to look in the archives. That's like trying to find a needle in a haystack, particularly with the search engine the way it is. I've never had any luck with it, anyway.

So here you go -- Stephanie Cave's recommendations:

Hep B:
If mother is Hep B positive or her status unknown: Give at birth, then follow CDC recommended schedule.
If mother is Heb B negative: Wait until just before starting day care, or, if not in day care, until the year before starting school. Give the second shot one month after the first; give the third shot four months after the first.

Hib, IPV (polio), DTaP:
4 months: Hib and IPV
5 months: DTap

6 months: Hib, IPV
7 months: DTaP

8 months: Hib
9 months: DTaP

17 months: Hib, IPV
18 months: DTaP

Boosters: 4-5 years of age for DTaP and IPV.

(Make sure all are mercury free.)

Prevnar:
Doesn't recommend prior to age 2, and then 1 dose.

Varicella:
Give close to school age (age 4-5) if mandated and if child is not immune to chicken pox based on a blood test.

MMR:
Give in separate vaccines: measles at 15 months, rubella a year later and mumps a year after rubella. Give boosters at age 4-5, during the six months before your child starts school. You could ask your doctor to check the titers for immunity to the MMR and skip the booster if your child is already immune and your state allows proof of immunity in place of the shots. Recheck titers at 12 years.

Hope this helps. (It's not necessarily the schedule I would feel comfortable following, but it's what you asked for.)

Well, the first step I'd recommend is to go check out the Premium Memberships in the box at the top left. Premium Memberships include the ability to search on more than one term at a time.

Second step would be to use advanced search. Then choose the appropriate section in the archives and see what you can find.

I agree that searching isn't easy.

I have answered the question lots of times over the years. I am sure it is in there hundreds of times.

That, and I get snarky answers from people who don't appreciate my efforts.

Where do you think I found the answers I needed in 1980 when my DD was born and I did not have a computer and no internet? How about my mom in 1954 with me? How about my Father in the 1920s when his family decided not to vax?

Delayed Schedule

Here is the way I understood her book. However, Prevnar has added about 3 doses since the book was written. That, and a couple of recommendations my dr made so it has been slightly altered. Also the info on splitting MMR is below...

2mos – Hib
3mos - :Prevnar
4mos - Hib & IPV
5mos - DTaP
6mos – IPV & Prevnar
6mos (2 weeks later) – Hib
7mos - DTaP
8mos – Prevnar
9mos – DTaP
12mos- Prevnar
15mos - Measles
17mos - Hib & IPV
18mos - DTaP
25mos - Hep A
27mos - Rubella
31mos - Hep A
39mos - Mumps
4-5 years - Varivax/DTaP/IPV (not all at the same time)

NO Hep B, Proquad or Comvax
*******
MMR SPLIT INFO

Dr. Stephanie Cave (Dr. in Baton Rouge, LA - 225-767-7433) is an advocate for children being immunized with three separate doses instead of the MMR combined. Reportedly, she asked for American Medicine (wholesale pharmaceutical company) to carry these immunizations. The owners of American Medicine are Mark and Bridgette Schexnayder who are also pharmacists.

The pharmaceutical company of these three separate immunizations is Merck.

American Medicine will need the following from your doctor:
•Doctor’s prescription with the child’s name
•Copy of Doctor’s license
Have your doctor fax this to 225-924-0249.

You will then pay American Medicine (225-924-0247) and they will overnight the immunizations to your doctor. You will have to pay the overnight shipping fee due to the medicine needing to be refrigerated. Make sure you ask for the expiration dates so that you will know ahead of time and for your records.

September 2007- Cost is appx. $119 (for all 3) plus shipping/handling (+-$20.)
