Dr Sears Vaccine schedule

Title for those on mobile

Dr sears vaccine schedule.

I am considering this for my LO. I feel it's better to spread them out as opposed to giving them so many at a time. Is anyone else doing this as well?

    I considered it, especially since H has had some strong reactions to vaccines and wasn't sure if that would be hereditary. But after discussing with the pedi, we decided to go CDC.
  • We will be splitting her vaccines but split a little differently based on ped's advce at least in the beginning anyway. Our Ped recommends no splitting but will honor our request. What they won't honor is parents who choose to skip vaccines all together.
    We'll revisit the topic a little later.

  • I will modify and delay based on his book, but not necessarily take his recommendations.
  • We went with CDC recommendations.

  • I trust my pediatrician and the CDC to make a smart recommendation for my children. I didn't delay anything with my first child and I won't be delaying with this baby either. Everything has turned out just fine. I don't understand why people would want to delay, at all. It's just more pokes for your baby and more trips to a germy pediatrician office, not to mention, just another thing to keep track of and not screw up. But to each their own I guess...

    Us too.  

  • We'll go with CDC recommendations as I couldn't find any any widespread studies showing benefits of delaying, where there tons of studies showing the CDC schedule is safe. I want my baby protected as soon as possible, especially given how much travel she will be doing late summer and fall.

    This. Delaying puts your child at higher risk. There is no reason to delay.

    I will give my baby girl all the recommended vaccinations but I won't give more than 2 in one visit. She only has two legs so she's only getting 2 shots! Her 2 month appointment was for 3 shots and an oral drop. I gave her the oral and one vaccination and will be returning in 3 to 4 weeks for the remaining two. By the time we go back for her 4 month check up she will be caught up. I feel bad taking her once a month to get poked but I feel more comfortable not poking her numerous times at once. My pediatricians office has been super supportive of my personal decisions. Do what feels right for you and your baby.

  • Delaying vaccines does not put your child at a higher risk. Trust your gut and do whatever feels best for you and your family.
    Dr Sears has multiple vaccine schedules. I am choosing to only do 2 vaccines at a time due to the amount of alluminum in each vaccine and the fact that there has not been one study on infants and the breakdown of aluminum in their bodies. They have however studied the effects on infants and aluminum through IV and it has been known to cause neurological effects. Which is why they must put a warning label on the IV fluid.
    If anyone is interested I can get links to different studies.

    This is untrue and is not supported by any evidence.  Delaying has been linked to higher rates of mortality from Hib and Pertussis.

    I'm very interested in this. Any links would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to read about it.

  • Doing what "feels" best when it comes to your LO's health is stupid. Do what is shown to be best and supported by scientific evidence. Believe me it will feel like hell when your kid has meningitis from the measles virus and is neurologically devastated.

    I would listen to anyone who can land a date with a Wahlberg.  Plus, she was so good on "Singled Out."

    Sarcasm aside, I agree with you.



  • Do you have any evidence of this? The first vaccine given (even if you delay) is the DTaP. Not sure where you received this info?
  • sure. Here is a link to the FDA  and specifically a document about maximum allowable amounts and the warning labels

    http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfCFR/CFRSearch.cfm?fr=201.323

     If you go to www.fda.gov and search aluminum toxicity you can find many different documents. Sorry I cant link more at this time. My baby is waking from a nap. I do recommend Dr Sears Vaccine book too....or just his website.

    we are going with his schedule pretty much. I am currently "shopping" for a new pediatrician after the one we saw at our two month appointment (first time LO saw a MD) tried to give him the vaccinations that I had JUST told her we were going to wait until 4 months to get. We did a home birth and LO has seen a midwife many times but we didn't take him into an MD until 2 months.

    No, the first one given is Hep B.  Either in the hospital or at 2 weeks.

  •  I dont count the Hep B because I dont know anyone that does it. Being that neither my husband nor i have Hep B, I'm not a prostitute, nor intravenous drug user and had full prenatal care there is no need for it and I haven't found a Dr who disagrees.

    Look, I'm not trying to get into a vaccine argument. Do whatever is best for you but please don't not question your doctors, do the research and make the best judgement that suits you and that you are comfortable with. this is your baby. Your decision. If you choose to not delay, great. Your choice.

    Wait, so only children of prostitutes and drug dealers get the Hep B shot... you are seriously misinformed.

    This article specifically discusses pertussis.  

    http://jama.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=200499#REF-JOC50004-2

    "Pertussis is another example of the importance of timely vaccination. During 2003, 11 647 cases of pertussis were reported in the United States31; incidence was highest among infants who were younger than 6 months34 and infants accounted for the highest proportion of pertussis-related hospitalizations and deaths.35 Among infants who contracted pertussis during the 1990s, at least 44% were undervaccinated for their age. Furthermore, among the 25 pertussis-related deaths in infants aged 2 to 11 months, 15 had not received any doses of pertussis vaccine.36 While these children were too young to have received the complete 4-dose series of DTaP, data suggest that the risk of pertussis-related hospitalization is decreased if children have received 1 or 2 doses of vaccine.35 Furthermore, because siblings are a source of transmission to infants too young to be vaccinated,3637 timely vaccination of these children can indirectly protect young infants by decreasing their exposure. We found that 16% of children were undervaccinated for DTaP for more than 6 of the first 24 months of life and another 14% were undervaccinated for 3 to 6 months."
