I’ve heard about alternative vaccination schedules, would that be okay for my child?
Angie Ostrowski, MD answered:
Pediatricians recommend vaccinating your children according to the immunization schedule endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). This is a widely utilized and extensively studied vaccine schedule, both in regards to effectiveness and safety of vaccines. In addition, the CDC monitors thousands of patients in a national registry, ensuring close tracking of vaccine side effects.
