A good schedule depends on your individual reasons for vaccinating. For example:<br><br>
Are there specific diseases you're worried about?<br>
Do you want to meet the requirements for your state by school age?<br>
Do you need to meet the CDC requirements for a custody issue?<br>
Will you be traveling somewhere with a specific disease you're concerned about?<br><br>
etc<br><br>

Are there specific diseases you're worried about?<br><b>I am worried the most about pertussis, almost all of them really except for chicken pox.....I know that might sound weird to you, but I just have that personality type <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">....I just want DS to be healthy, and am a wreck when he's sick, and he hasn't even had anything serious yet.</b><br><br>
Do you want to meet the requirements for your state by school age?<br><b>Well, are seriously considering homeschooling, but if he does happen to go to school, then yes, that might be a problem.</b><br><br>
Do you need to meet the CDC requirements for a custody issue? <b>No.</b><br><br>
Will you be traveling somewhere with a specific disease you're concerned about? <b>No.</b>

Well, pertussis is only dangerous under 6 months old. The vaccine is only available in combo and is very ineffective. Add to this that it is the most reactive vaccine on the market and you might want to do a bit more research before adding it to your schedule.<br><br>
As far as school- have you researched religious exemptions? They're really pretty easy to do.<br><br>
good luck!<br><br>
