Five-in-one, new-and-improved, just-for-you!<br><br>
When the queue forms for this new vax, get out of line.

We will be seeing more and more of these as they come out with new vaccines. What parent is going to let their children get 10 needles in one day? Nooooo they need to make a COMBO SHOT! All in one. One stop shot.<br><br>
Ok I’ll stop <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Yeah because the number of pokes is my big concern when it comes to whether or not to give a vax <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">

hmm, Id have to see a breakdown of the ingredients (most combo vaxes seem to have huge amounts of aluminum in them). but these seem to be possibly a good bet for some selective vaccinating families because they don't contain the usually skipped Hep B and the second one they talk about seems to have the big three I see most selective vaxers do (DTaP, Polio and Hib).<br><br>
However, even if there was no aluminum in them and the other ingredients weren't x5 or whatever....I'd still do the separated vaccines because of the ability to tell which it was if there is a reaction.

I sincerely hope they eventually shoot themselves in the foot with the # of vaxes they push, along with these ridiculous combos. I truely truely hope that day will come.

I think it could be a concern for many moms. I'm sure as they add more shots parents will hesitate to do so many jabs on one day. It's hard to watch a screaming baby get 8 needles at once. But, I guess that is the reason for a combo shot.

When doctors opt for a five-in-one vaccine like this, they are not concerned about side effects. A medical exemption is for one vaccine for a limited period of time, and if a child reacts to a five-in-one, then how is anyone to know which of the five vaccines the child reacted to?

They are out to kill our kids or at the very least turn them into something other than what they could be.

Like what, Gitti? A patient for life, maybe? Certainly not this: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:
