Is your baby sick on the day of his/her scheduled vaccinations?

An April study in the Journal of Pediatrics complains that sick children fall out of compliance. The study is  is now being used to encourage parents to vaccinate their children even when they are sick. Dr. Lisa Thebner, a pediatrician in New York City was quoted Monday in CNN Health as saying that, “The ideal is to vaccinate during a sick visit unless there is a proven track record of coming for every well visit, then perhaps it can be deferred.”

The other side of this discussion is that Mother needs to be able to properly monitor her infant after vaccination. With an ear infection, how will she know whether baby’s screaming is due to the ear infection or the vaccine?

That is why you should Ask 8 Before You Vaccinate, and do not vaccinate an already sick child.
