I am sure there are studies that say it is okay, I would just rather not have my kid get a vaccine when I know he is sick (fever, etc) for fear of compromising their immune system. ashley
Here it is, I have typed it in a schedule like format. She doesn't really give that. She just gives a few paragraphs (on pages 293-295 ). I made a few changes based on my doctors recommendations and there are more doses of Prevnar now than when the book was written. She says not to give Prevnar until after 2 years of age but my dr told me it wasn't effective past age 2, so I made that change. I am also attaching the info regarding how to get the MMR split up. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
Some also argue that they would give Mumps before Measles b/c Measles is more likely to have a reaction. I haven't made it that far (DS is only 8mos) and may consider that change as well.
2mos – Hib
3mos - :Prevnar
4mos - Hib & IPV
5mos - DTaP
6mos – IPV & Prevnar
6mos (2 weeks later) – Hib
7mos - DTaP
8mos – Prevnar
9mos – DTaP
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.)
