In brief: Shots/visit

Pedi MDs are used to giving multiple shots and the shots have less side effects than years before.
We usually are comfortable with 4-5 shots/time. We still will meet the parents where they are and can return on future visits (1 mo) to complete the series. The efficacy and compliance can be affecfed by not giving them at the suggested time. Studies have confirmed best efficacy per schedule we use.
