Hi everyone, my daughter who is 8 weeks old iis on anitibiotics for a UTI. Now I do not have any children with Autism but I worked with autisic children for years and I am totally fascinated with it. I have asked her doctor if I should wait to get her 2 month shots while she is on antibiotics and of course the doctor said she would be fine. But I want to ask all you mothers with autistic children because I believe you are a better resource than any doctor. I am very torn on what to do in this situation. Many mothers I have talked to said to wait till shes off of the antibioticd others said it doesnt matter. I really need help!!!

You will never know unless it turns out bad, so I would really wait. It cant hurt her to wait for the shots but the possibility of autism is not a chance that I would risk. My son was always on antibiotics and we just went ahead with his vaccines cause I didnt want him to be behind or off the recommended schedule. And at 3 he was diagnosed, I am not one to blame it all on vaccines but I dont say that they didnt hurt him either. Doctors always want you to vaccinate but he cant push you to do it right away. I hope this helps and im sure things will work out fine. Good luck with the doctor.

I know this would be a very late reply. I just come across this website looking for any resources on antibiotics and vaccines combined.
I am a father of an autistic daughter. She was on antibiotics soon after birth and than vaccinated. Since nobody else in my part of the family or my wife's has this condition apart from our daughter I always suspected that vaccines combined with antibiotics triggered the autism. If I could go back on time I would not give her any vaccine at all.

Many happy for all! I am Andrey and I cann't hold myself after youre answers. I'm simple russian physition and rich father. In case of UTI they alwayes found in pyelonephritis in USSA when ACDT- or ADT-vaccination was onli after 3-yares remission in urine analises. After 1992 onli economc reasons open our place for elevatng foreing and USA medicines with widest vaccnation. Now it is in my sity many lovers to vaccinate "all and alls everywhen and everything".
Absolut antyreason to any PROFILACTIC vaccine is unability to produce immunitetis (often deseasing child >4 times in year, infeccion without stronhg remission, atipic microflore in different place).
It's hard me to mind that You have such problems as my patients.

No if they are on antibiotics. wait to the antibiotics is done with before you do the vaccinate your child. The reason is the antibiotic might react to the vaccination and cause more problems. It ok if she get the vaccination later .

I think you need to find a different pediatrician. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) states that vaccinations should be delayed if there is a moderate to severe illness present. Now, your doctor apparently does not agree with me on this one but any illness that requires an antibiotic is "moderate" enough to me to delay the vaccines for a few days! Her immune system is currently compromised enough due to the UTI. Do you really need to stress her system by having her pediatrician administer SEVERAL vaccines?

I would wait until infection and medication regime is complete. Talk to your doctor most doctors don't push vaccines if the child is sick. I am not anti vaccine but do support an alternate schedule or spaced out vaccines. If I had to do it over again I would have waited longer to vaccinate my son. Good luck Cute baby.
