A Typical Immunization Schedule

What is a typical immunization schedule? Do all doctors follow the same schedule? The schedule is simply an indication of the kinds of immunization that your child will be getting and roughly around what age. To know more about it, read on.

*Only in high-risk areas

**Infants must be vaccinated at birth, 1 month, and at 6 months, if their
mothers test positive for HBV
***In cases where the first dose is not given at birth
****If the child is vaccinated against measles at the time of school
admission, it is not normally repeated

Key to Table:

DTP - Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis

HBV - Hepatitis B vaccine
HIB - Haemophilus Influenzae B
MMR - Measles, Mumps, Rubella
OPV - Oral Polio Vaccine
TB - Tuberculosis

Do all doctors follow the same schedule

Absolutely not. The schedule provided above is simply an indication of the kinds of immunization that your child will be getting and roughly around what age. Most doctors follow their own schedules, so you should consult your doctor on his preferred schedule of immunization. You will be surprised to know that doctors even in the same hospital sometimes follow different schedules.

Children need to have a strong immune system

I call it the vaccine child poisoning schedule. I have yet to see any evidence which shows that vaccinations are of any benefit to anyone except the people who profit from this ugly and brutal money-making racket.

Vaccines are neither safe nor effective and are completely unnecessary for a child's health and development.

The DPT vaccine and the genetically engineered hepatitis B and HPV vaccines are probably the worst vaccines of the lot, but all vaccines are highly toxic and only cause harm, such as ear infections, allergies, asthma, eczema, diabetes, neurological disorders including ADHD,autism and other developmental problems, cancer and many other disorders, as well as death.

Parents who want healthy children should therefore keep them vaccine-free. "Vaccines contain substances which are so noxious that they should not ever be injected into a human body." Dr Viera Scheibner PhD, Australia

"Belief in immunization is a form of delusional insanity."
Dr Herbert Shelton, USA

my son had his 5 months vaccination. initially he had fever for 2 days followed by a total loss of appetite and vomiting. we took him to the doctor and the doctor prescribed some drops for the vomiting to subside but he guaranteed us that our baby is perfectly healthy and he weighed 5.6 kgs. however, we gave the drops for 2 days and stopped thinking that the vomiting has stopped but it pursued so we continued the drops for another 5 days. still sometimes when he does not want to finish his feed he makes this vomiting face or if he doesn't like the taste of some food he coughs and vomits it all out. what can be a solution to this problem.
