Why it’s a bad idea to space out your child’s vaccination shots
With so many vaccines being required for young children today, some parents are asking their doctors whether they can space out or delay the vaccine schedule. They’re concerned that too many vaccines might overwhelm their child's immune system. Parents also worry that getting more than one shot at a time increases the pain and stress.
Debate about childhood vaccinations has intensified in recent yearsbecause of outbreaks of vaccine-preventable disease that have been fueled in part by parents who decline to get their children vaccinated at all or according to the recommended schedule.
