Re: 5 VAX in one visit?

Hib (haemophilus influenza type b) there was a shortage on this one I think
PCV (pneumoccocal)
IPV (inactivated polio virus)

So what you got was pretty typical for a fully vaxing situation. Not ALL peds vaccinate on this schedule to a T. Some space them out a bit more. If I am remebering correctly there WAS a hib shortage so some babies missed out on that one for a while. (I know my DD didn't get hers at 15 months as per schedule) The rotovirus one is pretty new, but is oral and a lot of moms opt out of this one unless their baby goes to daycare.

As for the vitamins, solids, juice and all-that is all old school stuff and unnecessary.
Ok, i'm not that weirded out anymore. The only ones that they don't do up here are Hep B and Rotavirus. But the others are condensed into combo shots so it's only 2 injections.
