I want to start researching/considering a delayed vacc schedule beginning at age 2.<br><br>
Can someone please tell me which combo vax can be separated out? I know I've heard that tetanus can be separated. I'm most interested in the DtaP and MMR vaccines. Can these be put into a single vax, spread out over a long period of time?

I'm confused by your question..... they are all together now. In fact, they have added more to the DTaP -- it now includes Polio and Hep B. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I think you may have been asking if they can be separated and the answer is yes, if your doc will order them separate. You might want to read up some more on them, though! Good luck in your research.

Weird. Things have totally changed since we decided not to vax a few years back. All of the sudden I'm seeing the chickenpox and flu vaccines advertised everywhere...lol. Wow, they're getting aggressive.

My understanding is that you can seperate D, Pa and T but the single shots contain thimerisol. (Aka-mercury) I would LOOOOOOVE for someone to tell me that I am wrong and I can get T without mercury, but I have not been able to find it. Anyone??? Can you give me good news?<br><br>
Just an FYI,<br>

Well, you can't get the P alone. You can get a couple of different variations on DT together, and the T is available alone, but not for babies.<br><br>
Personally, I would do major research on the diseases before I started trying to figure out which vax to go with. But if you do decide to vax, insist on seeing and reading the inserts before they stick in the needle. Also make sure that the vax being given matches the insert you have read.

yes the MMR can all be seperated. but it is hard to find the seperate vaccines i hear. stephanie cave recommends waiting a year in between each, measles, mumps, rubella.

Just to clarify, 'doing your research' does not mean that what you'll find will lead you to non-vaxxing...

That's lame that you can't just get a pertussis vaccine. Why this combination crap? I could care less about diptheria and tetanus. Of course the one that I'd like a vaccine on doesn't come separate. My luck!
