Spacing out/delaying vax

Okay I am considering spacing out vax for my LO and wonder if there is any info out ther that I can look up to figure out what should come when when spacing out. I have searched the next for some time this eve. and have come up empt handed. Any one out there willing to share their "schedule". I am not planning to skip vax's alltogether so that's not an option. I just want to space out since this LO seems much more snesitive to things!!!! (plus we have 2 older ones bringing home all sorts of nasties! )

Additionally - in light of the flu season coming... what is the age limit on the immus for that ? at least 6 mo? what if the infant seems to have an allergy to eggs (via breastmilk?)

Much TIA!!!!!!

Re: Spacing out/delaying vax

I know you said you don't want to not do any vaccines, but the flu vaccine has the highest amount of mercury of any vaccine - 25 micrograms per dose. I wouldn't even get that one again as an adult (and I'm very mad I was talked into geting it while still nursing, as mercury can go through breastmilk), much less in a baby at the peak of their brain development.

ew - I had heard that about the flu one. it's not one of the ones they give on the "regular " vax - at least not around here - it's just one of those extras but I know flu season was coming so I wanted to start getting info!
thanks!

Re: Spacing out/delaying vax

talk to your ped. about it... My DS will get his first vac soon at around 6 months. My ped recommended the DTaP as the first series as we will go 1 at a time/series. Then Maybe the polio next so hopefully he will be fully vaccinated except for the hep/b and varicella/chicken pox by school age...
If your pediatrician does not accept your wishes find another.. my 2 pence

Re: Spacing out/delaying vax

The minimum age for the flu vaccine is 6 months.

There are flu vaccines that are thiomerosal-free. That said, I have no issues with thiomerosal. If the vaccine supply is plentiful, both of my DDs will get flu shots this year.

The egg issue will depend on your dc's reaction. I am fairly certain the flu vaccine is derived from eggs. It would be something important to discuss with your doctor.
