I'm wondering if anyone has used separate vaxes? Specifically I want to do the DTaP separate with the oral for pertussis. But I would also like to separate further with the selective vaxes to rule out further reactions. TIA

There is no separate (or oral) pertussis. You can get DT without the pertussis. And for a child over 7 you can get just T (tetanus) But pertussis is not available solo (and diphtheria is not available without tetanus)<br><br>

I have to add: the DT and T vaccines do contain thimerosal.<br><a href="http://www.novaccine.com/specific-vaccines/vaccine.asp?v_id=37" target="_blank">http://www.novaccine.com/specific-va...ne.asp?v_id=37</a><br><br>
Tetanus is really difficult to get. Diphtheria isn't an issue in the US. It's big in Russia, from what I've read. I researched these because they were the only two that I really didn't know anything about. We opted not to do them.

There is a really good website called The National Vaccine Information Center (nvic.org I think), and it was started by a mother of a child that was injured by his DPT vaccine in the early 90's, prior to the DPaT (acell Pertussis).<br><br>
This site lists all the different manufacturers that produce the DPaT vaccine ---- read all you can (on their Mercury calculator page) because SOME manufacturers still have the thermiserol and some DO NOT anymore. Then, if you go with the Smith Kline or another without thermiserol, you still need to read the vial box to determine the vaccine manufacter date. Important because some will still be shelving vaccines manufactured from prior to 2000! Scary and you must check before they inject!!! Get as recent as you can or request a script and pick it up yourself from the pharmacy to take to your Ped.<br><br>
I don't believe you can separate the DPaT but Mercola's site says to request that they are so maybe somebody, somewhere has found thermiserol free versions of the Tetanus, Pertus a cell, and Dip? Have never heard of an oral form of the Pertussis and the oral polio is not safe to use. Could be wrong here though so pardon me if I am <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">.<br><br>
Good luck on your search and check out that site I mentioned ---- it has a lot of great info. and lots of research articles. I waited to vaccinate my two older children until they were 4 yrs. and 6 yrs., then my third child I decided to start at 6 mos. and she had a horrendous reaction (high pitched scream and seizures for the following two years), so that was the end of that. She now has Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis which is most associated with the Hep B vaccine (in other words, skip that one by all means). My toddler has never received a vax. I will wait until he is 2 yrs. old though and maybe I can do the Pertussis alone by then if a thermiserol free version is available.
