Re: vax question...about my brother

That vaccination schedule is the same as the current one, and yes it does seem like a lot of shots to me too. The only thing that has been added is the Prevnar vax at the 2 month appt. too, so the babies get 4 shots at that point.

I cannot *believe* they gave him the oral polio vax though! that's so dangerous! it is a live virus vaccine and the reason it was stopped being given to children is b/c a small percentage would contract polio from it (there was a guy at my college with crippled legs b/c of the vaccine). The IPV vaccine doesn't carry that risk.
