My daughter has never had a vaccine. I am feeling ready to start vaccinating, and want to get the following vaccines:

Dtap

PCV

HIB

*Possibly* MMR, undecided right now.

 

Anyone have suggestions on a schedule?

I'm considering something similar for my 18 month old.

 

1) Hib - only 1 shot needed.  Cultured in tetanus toxoid, so in theory, we're testing reaction to tetanus toxoid.

 

2) Prevnar - only 1 shot needed (at 2).  Cultured in diphtheria toxoid, so in theory, we're testing reaction to diphtheria toxoid.

 

3) DTaP - 3 shots, 6 months apart.  In theory, if there is a reaction, it should be to pertussis since we've tested the prior 2.

 

MMR is not likely, due to the human fetus tissue issue.
