    We have choosen to delay vac my son. We live in IL. When he starts school in the fall he will have had at least one of all the required vaccines but will still not be up to date. How so we handle this with the school. The impression I got was I need a religious exception. Not sure how to get...

    Hi I have a 5 yr old and a 19 month old, and one on the way. They have received zero vaccines. Lately though I have been cinsidering HIB and PCV. From what I've read the oldest will not have to even receive HIB though bc she's over 5. Is this correct? I'm terrified of them having a reaction...

    <div>I am trying to decide between giving my unvaxed five year old the primary series of DTaP-IPV or waiting until he is seven when we are able to start the primary series as Tdap. In Canada it looks like our options for DTaP-IPV are Quadracell & Infantrix-IPV and for Tdap our options are...

    <p>Hello!</p> <p> </p> <p>I am in Canada, and as I am sure most of you know, there have been some cases of measles. I have a brand new baby (4 weeks) and a 3.4 year-old unvaxed child. I am not sure what I want to do yet. I have read about MMR and the theory of shedding. And I suppose my...

  14. Selective & Delayed Vaccination
    I keep reading article after article advising doctors on how to "deal" with skeptical, "vaccine-hesitant," or other non-compliant parents. It seems like they're all looking for the Magic Bullet to win our compliance.<br><br> I'd like to turn the table and allow us to share what has worked best...
  15. Selective & Delayed Vaccination
    We have a 2year old, 4year old and 5.5 year old boy who up until now had no vaccines. My oldest is starting public school in fall and I hoped to get them all vaccinated before then on a selective schedule. I was hoping to do Dtppolio<br> then one month later do MMR ( we can't get separate in...
  16. Selective & Delayed Vaccination
    <p>The area I live in leaves things like vaccination up to the foster parent. (Unusual, and it actually took me by surprise.) I am not anti-vax, but after my daughter had a bad reaction to her dtap, I stopped vaccinating. I am considering MMR before puberty but I am on the fence because I am...
