This has been double posted on the Vaccination thread. But I have a 3 month old that will be going for his well baby visit. He'll be getting his first shot. I think I've decided to give the Deptacel/DTaP shot only at this point. However, our doc uses the Infanrix brand which has double the amount of aluminum and uses cow tissue extract. They suggested I contact the company to find out how to get Deptacel. I went to the Sanofi Pastuer website and sent an e-mail, but thought someone here may have insight into how to go about getting the brand of vaccine you choose, but the pedi doesn't use. HELP!

Doctors order what they want so I guess my only suggestions would be to convince the doc to order a box, find another clinic who stocks it or is willing to get it or perhaps get a pharmacy to fill a rx for it.

Thanks! I contacted the co and they gave me a # to contact to get the vax. (posted on vax thread if anyone's interested) The doc said they would b willing to administer it.
