I saw, once upon a time, a chart or something that showed where if a kid was over a certain age, they didn't need the vaccine.

After almost 5 years of no-vax, my husband and I have compromised on delayed and selectively vaccinating our kids.

I don't think I'm crazy, but I swear I saw this info somewhere before. For the life of me, I can't remember where/what or even come up with decent search terms.

I thought it was on the CDC's website, but they've revised their site/list and the information isn't the same.

Thank you guys so much.

Dr. Sears' book contains that info.

so if you don't start, say dtap, until age 5, you'd still need 5 doses?

I saw that one.
I remember seeing one from the CDC maybe 2 years ago that actually showed that if they were over a certain age, then they didn't need certain ones.

I'll look it up in Dr Sear's book.
I tried looking on his site, but kept getting lost.

I will be sure to post if I find it.

No you only need 4 dtaps after age 4.
