My dd will soon be three, and has not had any vaccines other than the hep b they squeaked past me at birth. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
If I were to get her vaccinated now, which would be applicable, and how many doses would she need? I'm not sure that i'm going to get her any, as my research is pointing me in another direction, but i'm curious about this, and trying to anticipate what my doctor is going to say about it in another two months.

You should be able to find the "catch-up" schedule on the CDC's website. It tells you how many doses are needed if they are not given at the reccomended times.

you should research each disease your SELF and decide yes or no for that particular vax.<br><br>
It's funny, but the diseases aren't nearly as scary the more one learns about the disease, who is most at risk (3d world living conditions, nutritional deficiencies, etc) and the miniscule rates of complications. PLUS each vax has its own efficacy and risks (like Pertussis and HepB are the most ridiculous vaccines, Prevnar and HiB cause waaay higher incidences of recurrent ear infections and )<br><br>
Pertussis (babies under 2 months who get pertussis are most at risk of serious complications)<br>
Rubella<br>
Mumps (serious complications are limited to, very, very rarely, sterility in boys only)<br>
Measles<br>
Diphtheria<br>
Tetanus<br>
Chickenpox<br>
Influenza<br>
Rabies<br>
Japanese Encephalitis<br>
Hepatitus B<br>
Hepatitus A<br>
Polio (bad outcomes from polio not common at all, not like we've been led to believe, the vaccine has viral contaminants)<br>
BCG (tuberculosis)<br>
HiB (Haemophilus influenza B, a Bacteria, not an influenza virus)<br>
Prevnar (developed to fight the resistant bacteria that now overgrows because there is less HiB floating around out there...most of us carry HiB asymptomatically in the throats anyway)<br><br>
this is just what I can think of off hand. Even though you waited, Do you now really want or need to vax your kid for all this?<br><br>
Each parent must look at the vax complication rates and the disease complication rates, along with INDIVIDUAL risk factors (for having complications of the disease...<br>
AND risk factors for complications for the vax, like family history of allergies, ADHD, autism, Chrohn's disease, eczema, food or chemical sensitivity, Neurological problems esp. fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, Multiple sclerosis<br>
AND their child's lifestyle, nutrition and age...and go....um, in most if not all cases the vax is more problematic and therefore makes no sense at all.
