I am not completely sure if and when to start vaxing my two youngest kids but we will be traveling overseas in the future so I am wondering what if any shots any parents gave there older children?

My oldest was fully vaxed on schedule till age 2. We skipped all of the 4 yr vaxes but MMR and waited on that till he was 5, for convenience- I waited till I knew he wouldn't be in contact with unvaxed friends. He's now finished with vaxes until, I think, age 15? A long time, anyway.
Older children 'need' far fewer vaxes than younger ones. Even if you chose to get them fully vaxed at this point, it would entail far fewere shots than at a younger age. I don't have specific info. Hopefully someone else will post something for you.
