For me, it would depend on what it is. The HPV vaccine didn't seem that useful to me when it came out, so I didn't get that for myself. I was delaying, so I didn't get Jamie the rotavirus vaccine and he didn't get rotavirus, anyway. Now, he's too old for the vaccine. If there were any that were really necessary, I might get them for him, but otherwise, I would just wait or not get it at all, if it was for something like HPV.
I think it depends. If it's a new virus altogether, such as Rotavirus or HPV, I do a lot of research and wait it out a bit. But, Kinrix is a vaccine brand that has DtaP and Polio together. Because both those vaccines are already "standard" vaccines, I'm not concerned. I'm actually thankful for Kinrix as we will be getting our Kindergarten shots here soon and it's one less needle.
It depends on the vaccine for me as well. Daniel got the rotavirus oral vaccine. I'm sure by the time my boys are teens, there will be a HPV vaccine for boys, so I will cross that bridge when we come to it.
