It really depends on what immunization schedule you are following. Here in BC babies only get 1 immunization at 6 months (DTaP-HB-IPV-HiB- Diptheria , Tetanus,Pertussis, Hepatitis B, polio, and Hoemphilis influenza type B)- it is a combination vaccine ,so there is nothing to split.

Having a normal short lived side effect like he had with his 4 month vaacination, would not be enough for me to change the immunization schedule.

I just gave the Ibuprofen right when we got home from the health unit, so it was kicking in before the inflammatory reaction started, instead of waiting for him to be in pain.

Since your doc wrote the book on vaccines, literally, you should ask him and then tell us!

Well, I think they get the same vaccinations at 4 months that they do at 2 months (no new vaccinations are introduced) if you’re on the CDC schedule.  So his reaction may have just been a fluke, and it may not reoccur again at all. 

We split up vaccinations until Dirty Delete was about a year.  Despite splitting the vaccinations, though, she had a similar reaction to the DTaP shot at 2, 4, and 6 months.  We felt better giving splitting the vaccintation into two appointments, a week apart, even though it is a little more of a hassle.

we are doing the full schedule but split vaccines because the only downside was more dr. visits and that was not a problem for me (dr. is close & we have good insurance).  that said, we have never had serious reactions so sorry I can’t help more! sounds like your dr is the one to ask 🙂
