My daughter's 2 year well check went well, I go to a doctor who practices a more natural approach and is very popular amongst the non-vaxers and vaxers alike. She recommended 1 shot of actHIB and 1 shot of PC-13 and eventually the Dtaps. Did anyone do these shots? Are they worthwhile? I am very scared of the Prevnar one, the Dtap I am not sure is necessary at this point and the HIB is the only one I am strongly considering. I have held out this long, you can't unring a bell, any suggestions, comments or ideas?

Hib really is not as much of a threat after age 2, not sure why the dr would recommend that one?

After age 7 she could get the Td instead of DTaP - not sure why she would need pertussis and diptheria at this point, either. Did she tell you why those diseases concerned her?
