Hi everyone! I have a question about alternate scheduling...

DD's 2 month appt is next week and I want to split up her shots so she gets them spread out over time rather than many at once. For those of you who may have done this, how did you plan it out? They want to give her shots at each appointment every 2 months if we were on the regular schedule, so how long will it take to get everything? I am planning to get her the DTaP at one time, the Hib at another time, and the Prevnar 13 at another time. Plus polio, but that can wait. I do not want Hep B and I'm not sure about live virus vaccinations. At our Pedi, we have to schedule appointments far in advance so I don't know how it will work to spread these out. Is there an actual schedule out there for this? The nurse I spoke with on the phone said they don't recommend spreading them out since it takes so long to get appointments. Not a good reason to give her little body such a jolt in my opinion. I don't want any aluminum containing shots given the same day and I will deny hep b. Other than that I just want them spaced out. How spaced out is enough? One a week, every two weeks? then starting over 2 months later? Is it the age they look at or the spacing? I am at a loss.

Please let me know if you have an suggestions. Thanks!

Have you checked Dr Sears' schedule? he has a whole alternative schedule that you may want to look at.

Dr Sear's Vaccination book was very helpful for me, as well as going to very supportive Pediatrician. Most offices will try to pursuade you to give more shots at once because they want to (for some crazy reason) keep your child on schedule and get the shots "over with" but stick to your guns!

I am following the same schedule as you. My son just turned one and has never been given more than one shot at a time and has only had HIB, Prevnar and Dtap. I rejected Hep B at the hospital, and had to sign two disclaimer forms telling me how dangerous it was to do so. I asked the nurse if they have other Moms sign forms explaining the risks of giving a baby that is 6 hours old a vac that they really don't need. She was not happy.

Good luck

I third the Dr.Sear's book/schedule.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
