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?

 

TIA.

Each component of that Vax has its own efficacy length AND the immune response will be different in each individual. So there really isn't a way to say unless you drew Titers for each disease individually.

You only need one hub after 15 months.
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.

We'll do titers after 3 dtaps. We didn't start until 2 years and will have a second dtap 9 months after the first with dd. Ds had one at 28 months and then 4.5 years. He'll have his third now 9 months after the second. We'll run titers next august during his 6 year checkup

Nia82, I am curious as to why you are spacing the Dtaps so far apart.

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.
