 “Oh No, It’s Time To Vaccinate!  Now What?”


Have those words crossed your mind?  What is the right Vaccination schedule for your family? 


Some parents don’t want immunizations at all.  Some parents want to follow the exact recommendation of their Doctor.  Some parents would like to find a middle ground when it comes to immunizations. 


I’m not advocating any particular method.  I do suggest doing some research before making a decision.  For instance, are you concerned with the side-effects of even trace mercury or perhaps the adjuvant aluminum?  Then you may want to request mercury-free vaccines and/or individual vaccines rather than 3-in-1’s in addition to spacing  out the dosage.


Based on personal research and interview results, certain members of the FDA advisory board, as well as the medical community caution that despite released finding, vaccines which contain both thimerosal and an adjuvant can affect your neurological system.  



You’ll want to be informed particularly before sending your little one off to School.  The majority of Pediatricians will keep you up to date with state requirements, but there may be times you’ll want to know before they start public school (i.e. daycare or preschool).


Here is a link to all  State requirements


Below is a columned chart of Dr. Sear’s alternative Vaccination Schedule that many adhere to.


Please Note: many pediatric centers are strict in their policies regarding the administration of vaccines and may not feel comfortable using an alternate schedule beyond State requirements; please discuss this with your pediatrician.


Additionally, if you opt for the flu vaccine please be aware that as of the publication of this article, the only mercury-free option is the nasal mist.


 HOVER HERE FOR 2014/2015 INFOThe single-dose units are made without thimerosal as a preservative because they are intended to be opened and used only once. Additionally, the live-attenuated version of the vaccine (the nasal spray vaccine), is produced in single-dose units and does not contain thimerosal. Per
