Is it possible to get them more seperated? I keep putting the things off... I want to get him vaccinated, but this 5 in 1 thing is really bugging me. Is it possible to get the old style type privately or something?
Is the 5-in-1 any more vaccines than they would have had under the old style? Isn't it the "old" DPT plus polio and, er, Hib? If so, what is the bonus of having the "old" version (excl the mercury part that is).
Flame Dragon wants to separate them SD, so give them singly with gaps. They did something similar in the old days. They gave polio separately from the dtp, and of course there was no hib or men C. They used to spend about the entire first year getting the dtp and polio jabs into you. When MMR was introduced they changed the earlier jabs and gave the dtp+polio at 8, 12 and 16 weeks.
SG- no problem with this sort of stuff. If anyone starts having a go about me being selfish etyc etc, I will no longer post anything except a link to that short film about autism, so maybe then people will understand what I'm so scared of. I tried to coose a name that reflected that, but I ran out of letters
Its all so confusing Sounds madness, but all I know is that 3 years ago DD had jabs and was ok, now they are different jabs and I keep reading horror stories, and something in me is squirming up about them.
How is it that I did MMR with relatively no worrying, but this, which is much less publicised is making me hide in a corner?!?!
I'll look up private stuff and prices etc and go from there.
If you come across single tetanus please let me know Flame (actually would be grateful if you let me know whatever you find out). Apparently my surgery would be willing to give ds2 and ds3 single tetanus but I'm not sure it exists.
