Child Immunization Shots
Immunization : The 1st shot your baby will receive is the 1st Hepatitis B vaccine before leaving the hospital, 2nd Hepatitis B at age 1 mos, then Dtap, Ipv & Hib ( pentacel), pcv & rota virus vaccine all at age 2 mos, next set of sts ages 4 & 6 mos. I hope that answers your questions. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can I defer my baby's 6 month immunization shot? If yes, how long? What is the time frame to pre or postpone it?
Why: If the kid has an illness or is under specific treatment that would not support the normal series, a delay would be warranted.Otherwise it is not considered wise, and leaves the kid vulnerable to illness. Vaccine use has been the best thing to happen to kids in modern medicine. You need only to take a walk through an old cemetery to understand how life was before them. ...Read more
Is it dangereous to delay child vaccine that is supposed to be given at 4 yrs age by a month or so? I think it is just one shot.
No, but: It is fine to delay the shot if/when it would interfere with the other things you have going on. Sometimes we do after asking you about family members on chemo or other issues that would be important.But don't forget the need is still there to get these boosters to keep the kid safe. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Should I give Tylenol (acetaminophen) to my 2 months old baby before immunization shots or after o reduce the discomfort ? Which is preferred ?
Not 100%: Vaccines really have been a major improvement in public health but no medicine is 100% effective. When vaccines don't prevent a disease they do usually make it much lighter. We also now know that most vaccines do not last forever . Boosters are often needed later in life. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes: People who are sensitive to vaccines or the adjuvants in them can react and vomiting is a possibility . It is more likely to be associated with the vaccine reaction if it occurs right after or within 24 hours in my experience. Some people experience fever, fatigue, irritability, or just not feeling well after vaccines. ...Read more
Does it matter which flu vaccine a child with ADHD (takes methylin ER daily) receives? Shot or mist?
It does not matter: Both work very well. There is limited data to suggest that FluMist might work a little better. Another upside is no injection, but if you want to have FluMist administered and covered by insurance, certain plans do not cover it. Check first. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I just received the first shot of the hepatitis vaccine series. Can i still safely breastfeed my baby?
If gf had hep b as a baby and is dormant now (not chronic) can I get it from her through sexual contact? I have received all 3 vaccine shots.
If your vaccine...: "took" (detectable titers of anti-hepatitis b surface antibody are present in therapeutic amounts), then you are likely protected. If there is any doubt, ask your girfriend to get tested to check her viral load while you have your antibody levels assessed. If the latter are low, you may need a booster. Above all, be careful to avoid exposure in an unprotected setting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Justified ??: Sounds like a skeptic ignoring the epidemics and losses we suffered to get here. Ben Franklin lost a son to Smallpox & recorded his regret in not vaccinating him due to his own skepticism. As long as there is international air travel & pockets of these diseases around the world,our kids deserve the best protection from them we can develop. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Look for backups: In my state the law requires that i keep records (including vaccinations) on kids for 7 years from their last visit or 21 yrs, whichever is longer. Retrieval of the information is provided for a fee. Schools & day care facilities will often have a backup list available for review. Some states have a vaccine registry, but parents may have to opt-in to have their kids info recorded. ...Read more
Yes: Immunizations are not 100% effective. Some vaccines are closer to 100% than others, including the Hib and pcv vaccines for meningitis. Yet others, like influenza and varicella vaccines, may cover 50-70% of children in some studies. Booster doses are recommended to increase the likelihood of full protection. ...Read moreSee 13 more doctor answers
