Six month old immunization schedule

The six-month immunization appointment can be a big one. The CDC recommends that baby receives the following immunizations or boosters:

Rotavirus (RV)
Pertussis (DTap)
Hib (that's the full name; protects against Haemophilus
inluenzae type b)
Pneumococcal (PCV)

In addition, baby can also receive Hepatitis B (HepB) and Polio (IPV) vaccinations between six and eighteen months. I think our doctor delayed these to later appointments, though.

Finally, baby may also receive the influenza vaccination, depending upon whether you are approaching flu season--influenza is recommended yearly.

    We do not vaccinate anymore but that is a lot for a six month old.

    I think you can request a delayed schedule, but I have not. I have heard that there are negative effects to even the Sears alternative vaccination schedule.
