Default splitting up vaccinations?

Is this possible? Is it okay to have more dr. appointments with fewer vaccines each time? I want my child to be fully immunized, but so many shots in one day just seems...not quite right to me. I don't have any research to back this up, just a gut feeling. (Before I actually make any final decisions, I will do a little more research than just asking a brand new message board!)

Heya

I didn't do this with my son - but I know a number of people who have - the key was finding a Dr. who was willing.

Start researching now and you will be ready when the time comes

Thanks. It's good to know that it is possible and I'm not just making things up. Now, to get around to actually doing some research!

I didn't know about this option when my kids were smaller either. Now that more vacs are being required by the schools, I'm hoping to do the same and split them up.

Dr. Sears has an alternative vaccination schedule in his Vaccine Book. The book was recommended to me when I was pregnant and I found it to be very informative. Overall, I would say that it is rather pro-vaccine in that Dr. Sears still recommends getting all the vaccines. He does, however, go through the usual side effects, ingredients, and importance of each vaccine to help you make a more informed decision on whether or not to give it to your child. Personally, I feel that most of them are unnecessary, but they are required by the public school systems here so I don't have much choice unless I want to homeschool.. which I do not. It's definitely important to make sure your pediatrician is on board with any alternative schedule you're interested in.. I've heard of doctors refusing to keep patients who don't want to stick to the CDC-recommended schedule.

This is an old post, but thought I would give input anyway, just in case you are still checking. I would get Dr Sears book. I would split them up. I would do a lot of research about vaccines rather than just doing them blindly like I did....see my daughter's blog, at juliagrimesjourney.blogspot.com. She had a severe reaction to her MMR-V vaccine at one year of age and is now permanently brain damaged. A rare, but documented side effect of the vaccine is encephalitis 5-15 days post vaccination. Just do your research....
