Hello,

Just when I think I am comfortable about delayed/selective schedule I find myself regressing back to breaking up single shots and in this case Dtap (which is a vax that truley scares me). My man is almost 23 months and I stopped vaxing at 5 months, well broke up the 4 month visit with HIB and IPV and then at the 5 month visit did the Dtap (Dtapacel) and then stopped all together. He has never been sick and and he has been in daycare since 3 months old while there has been numerous illness's passed around such as RSV, Flu's (confirmed cases of Swine as well) but again he has never gotten anything more than a simple cold. So my question is can anyone enlighten me to whether the Dtap can be split up where you can just get a Tetnus shot for a 23 month old? I am having trouble finding data that you can split it up for younger kiddies vs. older kids that get the T booster. I hope that makes sense and welcome pros/cons of not getting it as I again am perplexed about whether to do it or not. We are traveling abroad to Ireland soon and not sure about this and other vax's...

Thank you in advance

Tetanus only is only available for 7 years and up. I think it has full mercury.

Here is some tetanus only info:
