Re: Fully vaxing families?

my older two are fully vaxed....except rotovirus which had just been reintroduced when DD4 was born....this new one got her 2 month scheduled vaccines....but I intend to stretch out her other ones....only because she was soooooooo screamy and feverish afterward, so I feel we need to slow it down a little for my sanity....still by 5 everyone will be caught up. I have taken flu vax in the past (i'm a nurse or was and in contact with a lot of flu positive people) but DH and the kids don't take it.

Re: Fully vaxing families?

We fully vax on schedule. DS has medical issues, as do several close family members. We aren't willing to risk anyone getting a vaccine preventable illness. It is what is right for our family. I had a Hep exposure at work a few years ago, and it scared the daylights out of me. A student in my class had traveled abroad without the proper travel vaccines, caught it, and brought it back. She was in school for a couple days before she became symptomatic, and then was in a coma for a few days at our children's hospital. Just because I live in a "safe" area doesn't mean that we are risk-free.

Re: Fully vaxing families?

My kids are fully vaxed (except flu) by 3, but we do it on a delayed schedule. I only allow 2 shots at a time so I know where the reaction, if there is one, is coming from.

My cats are fully vaxed. Well, except for one who has a nasty history of reactions. He does not get the leukemia vax.

We are fully vaxed here, too! DD1 is the only one who gets the flu shot...DH and I don't do it, and DD2 was too young this year. I am *thinking* about spacing out DD2's next set of shots, depending on how many she's due for, b/c she screamed all night and had a fever the last time around, which is SOOO unlike her. Otherwise, we stay on track...it isn't worth it to us to risk the alternative.

Fully vaccinated and on schedule, except rotovirus, which is not offered by our doctor.

Fully vaxed but we don't do flu shots. Ds doesn't get chicken pox vaccines because it gives him a small outbreak of pox. Not sure what I will do about HPV.

My 4 year old is vaccinated (state mandated only) and my 19 month old is not, but he will be by the time he finishes pre-k. I simply delay.
