Looking for an alternate schedule

I've decided not to vaccinate my child at such an early age but would like to start them later. Does anyone know of any alternate schedules available that start at two years of age instead?

Tlyons - as long as the "rules" of vaccination (spacing, timing, number of doses, etc) are followed, there are oodles of ways to schedule shots. The rules are here:

How you schedule them is between you and your child's PCP wrt how many and how often. As long as the minimum intervals are respected the possibilities are quite extensive. There are guidelines for "catching up" unvaccinated children - they are here:
