Does anyone who lives in Australia (Melbourne) know a GP or Paediatrician who can space out a vaccine schedule for babies?

The vaccines don't contain mercury, lead or aluminium. Where have you read that?

I have had all of mine vaccinated on schedule and they are all fine. Unless there is a history of reactions in your immediate family then the chances of your child having a reaction is minimal.

I was thinking that as well re ordering, but how can i , i am not a GP.
I rang yesterday Royal Childrens Hospital, and they told me that if starting at 6 months, baby can no longer receive the Rotavirus vaccine
at 6 months he will receive one vaccine which is Pneumococcal vaccine (only one shot).
The big one, contains 6 vaccines in the one shot and CAN NOT be separated, s it comes like that! the vaccines are:DTPa – IPV-Hib-HepB (Infanrix-Hexa), Hib (Hiberix), Tetanus, Whooping Cough, Polio, Hepatitis B, Disperia.
So, My problem is the ONE that contains SIX in the one shot.
I just cant imagine in such a small body to inject sooo much straight away! they contain mercury, lead, aluminium... all sorts of nasties.
There is also no guarantee that they will work ofcourse. I just think its really too much to handle to receive so much in the one go.
I know that years ago they did not used to do it this way, but i guess now they do for convenience, but dont tell you of the side effects.
It is a very debatable topic i know, and ofcourse i want the best for my baby, it just breaks my heart if i make the wrong decision!

I think you will find that you have to order them in, and it may not be free. If you can acknowledge that when you ask, they may be more likely to see that you are aware of the problems with it.

Can I ask why you are wanting to space them out? Have you had issues in your family with it?

I have asked a few already, and they seem to not want to do it!
Also, they say that they actually receive the vaccines already made (so its a few in the one).
