Re: Vax questions

You can pretty much do whatever you want, but I would spend the time researching it so you are comfortable with whatever you decide to do.
Keep in mind that you can never un-do a vax. But also keep in mind by delaying them, you are leaving her vulnerable for those diseases until she is vaxed........and it is also the time when she is most vulnerable in general (the severity of VPDs are typically more serious in infants/babies). I don't know about your state, but in my state there has been a lot of pertussis going around -- many cases in my community, including members of my church. Therefore, I would not feel comfortable delaying the dtap, for example. I would feel comfortable delaying polio, however (for example). So you really need to evaluate each vax and do its own risk/benefit profile to decide if you want to delay, skip, or vax on schedule.
