*The man who developed the Rotavirus vaccine Dr. Paul Offit , also sits on the committee who decided how many doses should be given. The other board members included four people who own stock in Rotavirus.

**The flu vaccine contains 25 mcg per shot. The live vaccine contains no mercury at all and only comes in the nasal mist. It’s recommended to receive the Influenza shot yearly.

***Adolescents aged 13–18 years who missed the 11–12 year Tdap dose or received Td only are encouraged to receive 1 dose of Tdap 5 years after the last Td/DTaP dose. This is a new recommendation.

****This vaccine is currently being marketed toward females, but will be targeting boys in the near future.

I'm trying to update my blog and was hoping that someone would review what I've got listed. Please let me know if I've missed something. I'm going cross eyed trying to read the AAP fine print.

Eternally missing DFS3 (stored safely in our hearts) and DFS1
Praying for Little R as she transitions into a new family.
