Many parents have opted for an amended vaccination schedule or have decided not to have their child vaccinated at all. It is important to follow the recommended shot schedule for your child. The vaccines that your child receives have all been studied and approved and are continuing to be researched to ensure that they are safe for every child.
The website for the American Academy of Pediatrics at http://www.cispimmunize.org/ outlines the schedule of vaccines and other areas of concern around the vaccination schedule. For some parents the concern is the idea of having their child vaccinated might cause them to become autistic.
Most research and statistics indicate that there is no link between vaccinations and autism but having your child vaccinated, even on an amended schedule, will prevent your child from becoming seriously ill with any of the diseases that vaccines are used to prevent. Consult your child’s pediatrician to discuss any concerns that you might have regarding vaccines and your child.
