My DS had the 2 month shot when he was 3 yrs old. He had the DTaP,Hib,Ipv combo that is given here in Alberta. I am wondering how long he will have protection with this shot?
Dtap requires three as basic immunization plus a 4th booster 12 month after the last one. Ipv showed great immunity after 2 shots 2 months apart. 3 are usually 'required' by us schools.
BOth intentional and because of the Daptacel shortage. A European doc recommended that if you start after 2, to leave 6 months between dose 1 and 2 and one year between 2 and 3 and then do titers. In his experience, most kids will have sufficient titers then. Right now I'm waiting for the office to call that we can go head with Daptacel. We're on the waiting list.
