This is Dr P's recommendation for parents:
She says it's important to make sure that your children's bodies are ready to respond well to a vaccine before giving it. She recommends a CBC (realizing of course that ped normals are very different from adult normals), and the Organic Acids test which includes evaluation of the citric acid cycle, detox mechanisms and B-vitamins, and costs $120-140. If you want to add on an evaluation of environmental pollutants it's an additional $120. Well worth doing before letting anyone stick vaccines into your kids.
Vaccines routinely given to children:
DPT or DTaP
Dr P also quoted this statistic: kids given antibiotics before 1 year of age have 3x the asthma risk.
