Lots of good advice here.

I second what others have said about quarantine…not just coughing people, but anyone who is a bit sniffly and says it's "just a cold." The clinical presentation starts...

DD had her second Td today. No issues so far.

We also got her titres back from the one dose of the MMR in 2013. Measles: positive. Rubella: positive. Mumps (hello Merck): negative.

We're not...

Thanks. Hope your kids are feeling better soon too. Ugh. I'm so done with winter and all the coughs and sniffles already.

That's good to hear. We're in a similar boat. My DD was supposed to get her second Td today, but she is just getting over a winter bug of some kind, so we've rescheduled for the end of the month.

Well, I can say no, as far as I know, to their regulation that DS must receive the DTaP. He'll just end up with nothing for now as they won't give the Td/Tdap until he turns 10. The other option is...

Unofficially you can, the way we did it. You have a CO on file so that you're off the registry's radar and then if you wish, you have to vaccinate privately by prescription. I seem to recall our...

Nope. And as were S&Ders, any vaccines were doing are private and off the registry.

Hi there.

I guess a place to start would be to check out the catch up schedules for your state/country. Plus, you need to find a GP or paediatrician who is willing to work with you on a delayed...

Forgot to mention that DD got b/w for a measles, mumps, and rubella titre. If it comes back good, then we're skipping the second dose. DS is having his b/w done at that point as well.
