Immunization Schedules For Children
We are scheduled for my 4 year old's four immunization shots. Is there a risk with so many shots at once? And then kids get scared of doctor's office
Regular well checks: Normally, vaccine appointments should go along with the normal well check schedule. Your pediatrician should be able to furnish you with the vaccine schedule they follow, showing which combinations of vaccines they use, and exactly when they are given, but most follow the acip guidelines and the chart found at aap.Org. So follow the well check schedule, and you should be fine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does a delayed vaccine schedule mean and is it better to vaccine children in the schedules already approved and recommended?
Hard to be a parent: Unfortunately, the fraud of few discredited researchers has led many to avoid or delay vaccines.Playboy bunnies use their fame to offer alternative schedules.

What's the expert opinion, could the HPV vaccine be given to children as a part of the regular vaccination schedule?
Already recommended: The vaccine is already recommended by the cdc, aap, aafp and acip as part of the routine childhood immunization schedule for both boys/ girls. We give it in our office starting at the 11 y/o well child check. Not many, if any states mandate it for school yet because of its controversy related to it being a vaccine to protect against an infection you get with sex. Get it sooner rather that too late. ...Read more

Very : Very important. This is demonstrated by the recent outbreaks of measles in unimmunized children. The mortality from measles is about 2%. The adverse reaction to the measles vaccination about 1:100, 000. You can surely do the math. No studies have confirmed the folk lore that immunizations cause autism. Following that scare, there were many deaths in children who were not protected against pertussis. Anyone doubting the efficacy of vaccination should visit an old grave yard and see how many children died in infancy in the first half of the last century before antibiotics and vaccines were available to children. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
