Are we sick of vax ???'s yet?
 
My son is scheduled for his 1 year checkup shortly and I've been doing a lot of research on vaccines to prepare for this. We are skipping the MMR and chicken pox for now. I'll decide at a later date whether or not to do these.

Anyway, he's had DTP already but I'm thinking of skipping this dose as well. My question is....if we skip this dose and pick it up later on, will we have to start over or can you just pick up where you left off? If it won't be effective and he'll have to start over with dose #1, I'll just get it and be done with it. If we can continue, say after 3 years of age with it, I'll skip it for now.

I've found plenty of info on delaying but no info on delaying what you've already started. Thanks for any help!!

most kids dont even need the last dose. You can get titers drawn to see if he's immune

Delay the last dose of DPT till after he's 4 :) You get a total of 4 shots instead of 5 and the same immunity. (That would assume him having had 3 doses at this point, not 4; without an exemption of some kind, he needs to have 5 doses if the 4th was given before his 4th birthday.) See the CDC's Alternative Immunization schedule at www.cdc.gov

There's a lot of information buried there on the charts about when you delay the progression after starting it. I'll see if I can get some more specific information for ya :)

That's what I'm having trouble finding. I'm digging now....

I have to go up and get his chart and see how many he's had so far, I believe 3.
