no i didn't wait--i did do the routine schedule, but i made sure i to tell them i did not want the "mixed" vaccines. in the first set, there are 5 meds. they can either give 5 shots or 3. they tried to convince me to go easy on my son and give him the mixed so he would only get 3 shots. i said no, and went back for another appointment so they could space it out. he got 3 then 2 the next week. it cost me an extra visit--but i dont care.
tomorrow he gets his 2 yr well visit- and i am nervouse cause this is the one people say they have seen a change in the child, and we are at a new ped office due to relocation. so i will be sure to have a conversation with the Dr. before any vaccines are given.

i do think it's important to give the vaccines at an "earlier" age, because people are flying in and out of the country every day, and unless the baby is living in a bubble he/she could be exposed to forign things. even you going to wok can bring back a bug from a co-worker whose child is school age etc.
my son started at the usual 6 weeks...

i have a cousin in italy whose daughter is my son's age. their vaccine age doesnt start until 4 months old.

Our pediatrician is retiring and we're now looking for a new doctor who considers the alternative schedule for vaccinations. I read the post from previous years about this concern of multiple vaccinations in one appointment, however none of them are recent. Is anyone able to assist me with a recommendation? My son will be a year old next month, in which he's due to receive quite a few shots. We live in the Greensboro area but will travel if necessary.

Default Alternative Vaccine Schedule

My grandson is seven months. When my daughter takes him to the doctor, if he requires more than two vaccines, she has them give two vaccines that day and the remaining vaccines a week later. The pediatrician at Forsyth Pediatrics said this was not necessary since, in his opinion, there is no proof that vaccines lead to autism. But they follow her instructions anyway. There is nothing scientific about a two does limit, but spreading out vaccines cannot hurt.

(I realize I'm replying to a 6 year old post, but FH still posts in 2015)

Please turn off the computer (and any device connected to the internet) - the University of Google School of Medicine is often wrong.

Please go to: Anti-Vaccine Body Count (formerly known as the "Jenny McCarthy Body Count", data now thru May 2015)

California, arguably the most liberal state, just passed the strictest vaccination laws in the country.

KQED recently published a short article on some of the history behind vaccination mistrust.

As far as the Triad, I'm looking at several opportunities locally - I have 3 children. Of course, parents need to seek a pediatrician they trust - however, I'd be wary of any pediatrician who advertises as being "vaccine-friendly" - many pediatricians are young/inexperienced and have never seen a case of measles.
