In brief: Unscientific&Dangero

There are no benefits and in my opinion can be dangerous as tis kind of approach leaves too many kids unprotected for too long time and there is no scientific evidence to support it as these have not been studied at all This approach is not approved or recommended by American Academy of Pediatrics or Center For Disease Control.

In brief: Less Benefits

Alternative vaccination schedules offer less benefits than they do risks.
The recommended schedules have been well researched and studied, and offer the best protection for infants and children against many potentially deadly infectious diseases. These alternative schedules have no scientific basis, and prolong the time until your child will be fully vaccinated.

In brief: NONE

Ample research demonstrates that there is no benefit to the alternate schedules.
All the claims so far have proven false! and the downside is that the child is susceptible to the diseases for which they have not been immunized and that often they do not receive the vaccines at all.

In brief: Cult fraud

This was most vocally promoted by a Playboy bunny among others.
She chose to accept this to explain her autistic kid, likely because it absolved her from any feelings of guilt.(deserved or not) It was based on the idea it spread out the stress of visits. This has no support in fact. The idea that a kid wants to come in weekly for shots they can get in one session doesn't pass the stupit test
