Yeah we are using the quadracel - polio, pertusis, diptheria and tetanus. I consider that the "big" one. All the other vaccines seem less important to me.

I'm still on the fence with MMR but am...

I wouldn't feel comfortable asking for my $ back after opening and using it. Maybe if it was expensive i'd feel differently. I wore it today, it looks pretty young to me, but whatever!
