Re: Fully vaxing families?

We are fully vaccination family. I even insist on Hep B early as my sister (currently 8 years old) has it. My DH normally doesn't get the flu shot but that is because he normally has a hard time going to a PCP just to get it. If they offer it at work, he takes it though. We are fully on schedule though.

Re: Fully vaxing families?

I am a fully vaxed adult. I used to skip influenza, but as a nursing student they were required and I anticipate the hospital requiring them of the nursing staff this fall. So, I expect to remain fully vaxed. Even got my Hep series as an adult because it wasn't part of my schedule as a child in the 70s.

I make sure that DH keeps up on his Tdap, but leave him alone about influenza.

My kids are pretty much fully vaxed. Influenza is one we go back and forth on. Some years they get it, some years we just don't get around to it. My kids all were infants/toddlers during the off market time for rotovirus, so they did not get that one. And, I just postponed HPV for my 11 year old son, at least for the time being.

Fully vax family here. We even get the flu.... DH gets pneumonia vax too. I had to get the MMR in my 20's because I didn't have rubella apparently.

Re: Fully vaxing families?

We pretty much are. The only thing is that we are only doing one shot per month with the baby (because her brother had a reaction)...but we plan on doing all of them so by 2 or so she will be fully caught up. And we only do flu shots for DS1 (because he's high risk due to his asthma).

Fully vaxed here too but on the Nz schedule which is different. Rotavirus and chicken pox are optional so we don't do that (they are not free) and flu is only free for high risk so only my asthmatic son gets it. Hepatitis b is only required if you are at risk.

Whole family is vaxed and on schedule. Sometimes it's a little late if we can't get an appointment for their well baby right away

Re: Fully vaxing families?

We are. I spread them out just enough that I can see if there is a reaction so I know which one they reacted to (so far none) but we do fully vax. Our ped works with me to prioritize based in risk and we do those first, eventually catching up by the 3 year well check. We also do flu shots. We are in an area with a high no vax rate, I'm a public school teacher, we do foster care, ds1 went to daycare and now 2 different preschools... I feel the exposure here is too high not to vax.

Re: Fully vaxing families?

We are. We are currently catching DD1 up as we didn't vaccinate her after 4 months. We decided to fully vaccinate again right before we had DD2.
