I don't know if this helps or not but ... my wife and I are researching the immunization schedule.  At the very least, we're following the recommendations given by Dr. Stephanie Cave (she wrote the book, 'What your doctor may not tell you about children's immunizations').  She's a pediatrician who recommends separating all the shots (and to make sure that you check the vaccine insert used -- check the manufacturer).  I want to separate each shot by a reasonable amount of time but I want to collaborated with someone who can help me with a risk/benefit analysis.  I have a consultation appointment with an esteemed Integrative Pediatric physician in the middle of March (Dr. Lawrence Rosen in Old Tappan, NJ); I'm hoping he can help me with determining the right immunization schedule for my son.  I posted a question here about checking 'titers' -- the number of extra shots for a specific vaccine could be cut down considerably if doctors made it standard practice to first see if the extra shots are necessary (e.g. there are a percentage of people who are successfully immunized for Hib after the first shot, another percentage who are successfully immunized after the second, and only 3 shots are needed for a smaller percentage of people -- yet they make the schedule easier by saying that 3 shots are required [or whatever the exact number of shots]).  Unfortunately, Dr. Rosen is too far for us to use as our primary pediatrician.  However, I found a pediatrician today who will abide by our wishes in terms of separation of shots.  She won't check titers, though, and I'm wondering if I can find someone who will.  She did say that separating them all may result in out-of-pocket with the insurance company but I don't care -- I have concerns about the high number of shots given to children (not just the former issue of thimerosal in the vaccine).  I'm still really new at all of this and am just trying to figure out what's best for my son.

It would be safer to have NO shots at all, they're all dangerous and useless. We've been brainwashed by the drug cartel and medical doctors who don't know any better. Many anti-vaccine websites and forums on the Internet. I would never again have any type of vaccine again..only had 2 flu shots a couple of years ago when I didn't know any better. Have learned much about the fraud of this practice...it's always about money for the drug comanies.
