I've never really had anything against vaccines...or, the idea of them. Just, I have a LOT against dumping all that into a tiny baby body. Especially with all the additives.

Now that my boy is close to 10yo, I am thinking of vaxing him, only...how? I still don't want a ton of things in his body all at once. He has a pretty strong constitution, but I would prefer to delay/separate what I can, in case he still does react somehow.

Is there any info out there about how to do this? What ones, and in what order? I still have to have chix pox titers drawn because he's been exposed 4x and has not caught them, unless it was so mild we couldn't tell.

But aside from that. I saw there was a delayed vax schedule for older kids on the CDC site but I can't make heads or tails of it. Am I just stOOpid or does it make sense to anyone else?

Any advice or help?
TIA

What I would do ( we delay an skip some)

DTaP, MMR and Hep B. We will do the HepB more toward the teen years.

Well, but except for pox I think I'll probably do most all of them...I think. It's a school issue, too, though. Here in NC it's easy to claim exemption, and it's very popular to do so in my town, but when we end up moving up north I think it will be harder.
I'd like to get it all out of the way now, since they're free at the health center. I just don't know what order to do them in, or which ones first/second/third, etc., and which I can skip because he's so old now.

TIA

Hey Maia--you said you did a vaccine thread, so I wanted to see what was up.

Just so you know, nonvaccination requires a religious exemption where I live, and it was ridiculously easy. No questions asked! I will be happy to help you with that, should you need it.

But if you do want to start vaccinating your son now, that is of course your choice. However, partial vaccination doesn't count--there are no philosophical exemptions.

Come ponder with me about food!

Looks like you need DTaP, MMR Polio and HepB

I would put a few months between each shot. "I" would be ok with doing DTaP and Polio together and MMR w/ hepB

Wow, how confusing! YAY he doesn't need the pox vax, though, then. Or pertussis, looks like.

I don't care about what he needs for NC, but we'll be moving up north at some point. I know MA is as easy as here, or I think it is, but like I said, it's time to vax him soon, IMO, and moving is just as good a reason as any
