Question on immunizations

My DD had her one year check up today. I thought for sure she'd be getting the MMR vaccine. What she ended up receiving was the Hep B vaccine, Hep A vaccine, Polio vaccine and the Chicken Pox Vaccine. No MMR. I asked my best friend whose daughter is just a few days older which vaccinations she got at her appointment. She said her daughter did get the MMR vaccine, and only two others which she could not remember, but not the chicken pox one for certain. How come they do this differently? Is it just a matter of different pediatricians? Thanks!

Re: Question on immunizations

I know my daughter is scheduled to get the MMR shot at her 15 month appointment this month. I believe she got the same shots your daughter got at her one year appointment as well. Not sure why some doctors may differ, but sounds like we're on the same schedule as you.

Re: Question on immunizations

My children got the mmr at 15 months. Some do it at 12 months but I think the later it is, the better.

Re: Question on immunizations

Ok sounds like a good answer! Thanks ladies!!! I have to say, I am a little relieved that they held off on it for now myself. Even though I plan on her getting it, I must admit I was a little nervous.

Re: Question on immunizations

The office we use has the MMR scheduled for 12 mths, but Im going to hold off as long as I can...probably closer to 24 mths.

Re: Question on immunizations

Most doctors go by the American Academy of Pediatrics vaccine schedule, but by no means is that a must.

[url]http://www.cispimmunize.org/[/url]

I was nervous about giving my child so many vaccines, especially after her 6 month round of shots which was followed by a non-stop screaming fit and a trip to the ER.

Needless to say, I did my research. A great book that gives a good arguement on the pros and cons of vaccines is by Robert W Sears. The Vaccine Book. He has an alternative vaccine schedule that I really liked. Primarly I just didn't want my child getting 3+ shots at the same time. I am electing to have her MMR at 2 years and Hep A and Chicken Pox later.

If you're nervous about her getting it, then you owe it to yourself to do the research of vaccines in general. There are some great vaccine websites (but I can't mention them here, sorry) that are easy to understand.

Re: Question on immunizations

Although they all make me nervous, it makes me even more nervous to not do them. I still have opted to go ahead with them at this point. Thanks for the advice though!
