There are so many vaccines out there now - for you and your children. Do you vaccinate on schedule? On a delayed schedule? Some vaccines yes, some no? Not at all? Are you still undecided?

No children so I can't answer that one but I believe *I and my DH are up-to-daye on our vaccines, but I'd have to check on some of the more esoteric ones (having lived in some pretty far-out places like China and Saudi, we basically had 'em all!) since we have been back in the US for 8 years now... and not looked into boosters from when we last got a battery of innoculations (1998, I blieve)

My kids are all up-to-date with their shots (ages 3 and 6).

My oldest DD is up to date on her's, with the exception of the HPV which we are not doing at all.

Hi Catherine! I lurk here a lot but haven't done so since the big *cough* upgrade.

DS (7) is fully vaxed and was on schedule. DD (2) has yet to receive her MMR but is up-to-date on everything else. I keep putting it off, even though I know the risks are low. She's very healthy and would most likely not suffer any side effects other than the pain of the shot itself and maybe some swelling. She's been ill lately so we are definitely going to put it off until after the New Year, when she's completely recovered. But she will get it.

The only vax we haven't gotten -any of us- is the flu shot. *edited to add, at this point I don't plan to get her the HPV shot either.*
