Yes I am a bad mother. I have noticed on certain peoples profiles/sites that toddlers get vaxed at 15 months & 18 months.

I thought it was only for 18 month toddlers? If so then my bubs is late on his shots and that is not ok with me

Does anybody know?

I thought it was vaccinations at 15 months, not 18...now I'm confused, lol. We're breaking up the 15 month shots, so my DS will get shots at both the 15 and the 18 month appointments, so may be other moms are breaking up those shots too.
Please don't think that you're a bad mom! I've got two boys and I still find all these rules confusing. As long as your DS gets his shots, its ok if they aren't exactly "on time".

According to The Vaccine Book by Dr Sears at 15 months the child gets HIB and Pc. At 18 months they get DTaP, Polio, Hep A, and Flu. The book was released in 2007.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

Layne got shots at his 15mos appt but I can't think right now which ones he got.

Here is a schedule
My 3yr old son Landan died 23hrs after being diagnosed with Meningococcal Meningitis. It is a potentially vaccine preventable disease. The vaccine isn't on the schedule until 11-12yrs but is approved for use at age 2yrs. Our second son received the vaccine in December 2010 when he was 2yrs old. My son & thousands of other children prove that a vaccine is needed at a younger age.
