Vaccination Changes

By Newsanchormom

My first son reacted horribly to the MMR shot. He was sick with a high fever. It was a nightmare. So I did wait a little longer than recommended to give it to my other two boys. I just couldn't find a good time to plan on them being sick, so I kept putting it off. Did you stick with the recommended schedule? Why or why not?
Vaccination Changes
FROM NBC: A new study looks at how parents choose to vaccinate their young children. Researchers at the University of Michigan found about one in ten parents uses a different vaccine schedule than recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Most parents who do use an alternate schedule developed it themselves and only 8-percent said they use a well-known alternative schedule. The vaccines most often delayed are the measles-mumps-rubella and diphtheria tetanus. Two percent say they refuse all vaccines.
