i'm sorry. i really don't know what the consequences are of being given the shot later 12 weeks, but, i just wanted to say that the pedi should be more careful in how they administer vaccinations. for example, my dr. will go over with me which shots my son gets on that day and then the nurse comes in and i have to sign on his chart next to EACH vaccine he is being given that day. if i don't sign, he doesn't get it.
What I've done with DD (some may call me paranoid, but sh*t happens), I review what vaccines they should be getting at that stage in life and then ask the dr/nurse, whoever's administering it, "what's this vaccine?" and if it's not on the list, I question, question, question them. I don't care if they think of me as a "ugh, it's THAT mother again". My child's health is of the outmost importance to me. I'd be frustrated with what they did also. I'm sorry I can't answer your question. I hope others can chime in and answer it for you.
oh, sorry, i wasn't clear before. I meant, I review what vaccines they should be getting at home BEFORE the appt.
wow, I know how it feels to be behind in shots - my dd was also in the hospital so she was delayed. I researched all of the shots and you are right they do get defensive. I asked to delay one even longer since a side effect - although rare - was seizure and my dd was having them. he agreed and when my dd was cleared by neurology I went on to get that shot. I think it was the DTap but not certain. MMR should not be given until 12 months? I am pretty sure of that but not certain.
Thanks. Yes MMR is not given until 12 months, I was just asking him about it.
Oh I am sorry I mis-read - rotavirus is 2 months, 4 months and 6 months so I am not sure ewhat would happen at this point. Sorry, I am sure he will be fine but it is scary.
