Vaccination Controversy

We have always vaccinated our other 3 girls as per the "usual" schedule. For some reason I'm not feeling good about doing this with Jacob. Between the autism, mercury and aluminum it just is not sounding good to me. I don't know if this is a nudge from God or just me being paranoid, but we have tentatively decided on doing a delayed vax schedule. Jacob's appointment is in less than 2 weeks so we'll continue to pray about it, but I'm pretty confident this is what we're going to do.

For anyone that's interested, we're going to follow the vaccination schedule from Dr.Bob Sears (we will probably eliminate the Rotavirus, flu shots, chickenpox and for sure will not do the HPV).

2 months - DTaP, Rotavirus
3 months - Pc, HIB
4 months - DTaP, Rotavirus
5 months - Pc, HIB
6 months - DTaP, Rotavirus
7 months - Pc, HIB
9 months - Polio, Flu (Do 2 doses of flu between 6 and 12 months if nearing flu season, then yearly thereafter, up to age 5, as flu season approaches. Try to use only a mercury-free shot. If its not available, don't get it that year, or get the nasal spray)
12 months - Mumps, Polio
15 months - Pc, HIB
18 months - DTaP, Chickenpox
21 months - Flu
2 years - Rubella, Polio
2 1/2 years - Hep B, Hep A
3 years - Hep B, Masles, Flu
3 1/2 years - Hep B, Hep A
4 years - DTaP, Polio, Flu
5 years - MMR (can group together for this booster)
6 years - Chickenpox
12 years - Tdap, HPV
12 years, 2 months - HPV
13 years - HPV, Meningococcal (once the Meningococcal vaccine is approved for age 2, Dr. Bob will move it there and delay hep B by 6 months)

Hi Tammy...

I just read about your vaccination delays. It looks like more and more people are catching on to the dangers of these vaccinations. I really don't know a whole lot about it, but I know Ryan and Jennie have decided not to vaccinate at all...except for the ones that they "have" to have.
I know of some friends who have 5 children, and they didn't vaccinate any of them. Interesting eh?

I read the title and thought it said Vacation Controversy! lol... oops.

You should absolutely trust your "mother's instinct"...
Baby boys have a greater risk of vaccine injury so you ARE making the right choice for him.
Way to be informed!

(I replied to your question in my comments.)
