I have twins that were born not long after he was diagnosed and they have been vaccinated, with a few changes to the schedule just to keep them from getting so many at once. The MMR was split up into 3, they never got more than one per office visit. They did get all but 1 by the time they were ready to start school. I saw no point in the hep vaccine since it is a disease you get through bad choices. Why give a newborn a shot for something you get through sex and needles? They had no other risk factors. They'll get that one when they are older and then we'll discuss the HPV vaccine.
That's a great post. However, certain types of HEP (A and C maybe) are often passed via contaminated food etc.
ETA - I just saw your post above. I'm glad you are thinking rationally about your children vis a vis vaccines and all.
