Thank you.  My pediatrician consistently says that his vaxes are acellular and I've been wanting to find more about it.

the DTaP is acellular-- the pertussis portion of the vax......not all vaxes are acellular.

What MMR does he give?  All current versions are live-virus.  Does he not give MMR, or does he lie and say that it's acellular? (Sorry if that sounds snarky, I don't mean it to.)
