At my daughter's 18 month visit she was mistakenly given her 15 month vaccinations again instead of the 18 month vaccinations. We waited one month and then she received the 18 month vaccinations. She is now four and is due for vaccinations again. While looking at the CDC's vaccination schedule I realized that all the shots she will be receiving at four years of age are the same one she was double dosed with. Is there any need for her to have these 4 year vaccinations? She has autism and while I don't think vaccines are the cause the mom in me can't help but be worried.View Thread
