I've just in the last 3 months started selectively vaxing both my kids.  I've made sure they are getting Vit C and A supplements, but is there anything else I can do?  DD had a skin reaction to her second DTaP, but otherwise neither kid has shown any serious reaction.  I'd like to keep it that way!
Thanks in advance.

we usually do vitamin c and that's it.


so far we haven't had anything but localized soreness except for my ds' final DTaP where he had quite a bit of swelling in his arm.

eh. who needs a signature?
