I wanted to know what others feel about vaccines? My son is 2 months old and ready for his Vaccines but Im not sure what I want to do. Do I get them all at once or spread them out? Are there some that I dont even get? I have been reading and racking my brain about this subject....

Before getting our son immunised I read a lot about it and considered not immnumising him but in the end I decided the risks of known diseases were higher than the unknown risks (brain damage/autism). He got 2 or 3 injections at 6 weeks and he cried and the following day got a fever and vomitted several times. At first I tried to see if he could handle no pain relief but gave him Pamol in the end and he was a lot better. It took him about a week to get back to normal. I think it is better to get them all at once - as far as I have heard, you cannot 'overload' your immune system with too many vaccines so it is better to get it over with. After all the next vaccines are only a few weeks later...

im in australia and my daughter had her 2 month needles 3 weeks ago, she had 3 needles, 2 in one leg and one in the other. yes she cried a little bit (i think i cried more than she did) but i knew it is in her best interest and other peoples best interest to.
Niven slept all afternoon and woke up very tired and grumpy but 20 mins after panadol she was right as rain.
to me it is a no brainer, my child is protected by having a vaccination, and she wasn't really to bothered by it.
it would be easier to get them all done at once to then its over and done with rather than the effects over several weeks

Where are you from? I am in Canada and the 2 month vaccines is 2 needles... one to protect against 7 kinds of pneumonia and the other is the tetanus, diptheria, polio, pertussis and flu. One goes in each leg. I would suggest getting them all at once, because then if your son reacts, he'll only have to react once. My son was pretty good... a bit of pain in the evening that was relieved with baby tylenol and then the next day it was like nothing happened. Good luck on the decision!
