6 WEEK VISIT
As per CDC recommendations it is perfectly safe to receive 5 vaccines in one visit. However, our physicians at Comprehensive Pediatrics’ follow a vaccine schedule, with the same vaccines more divided into frequent visits. We feel in doing so, we are able to identify if a baby has an adverse reaction to a specific vaccine. Also, parents feel more comfortable administering two vaccines rather than 4-5.
For more information on vaccine safety and side effects:
Most vaccines given should have no side effects greater than some redness or swelling possible low grade fever < 102 F and irritability. We recommend giving a Tylenol dose to alleviate symptoms. For questions regarding dosing- please consult our dosing chart based on weight.
At this visit, your baby will receive 1st HIB (Haemophilus influenza type B) PCV(pneumococcal) vaccines.
