Have you read The Vaccine Book by Sears? I found it informative and he provides an alternative schedule for shots that spaces them out. It's something you and you Ped can decide on. Please remember that when parents choose not to vaccinate it increases the risk of all our children. If an older unvaccinated child gets sick with a commonly vaccinated desease, his more mature immune system is better equipped to fight it. But if that child comes over to play with a friend who has a baby sibling, the baby's immune system will have a harded time fighting that desease. I wouldn't want my child to put younger children at risk. They recommend patents get vaccinated for pertussis now too , so you don't risk bringing it home to your own baby.
