My wife and I have a 2 month old that went in for his checkup. We got the Hep B vaccine at birth and 1 month. We had a long discussion last night
about what we wanted to do about vaccines going forward. I heavily lean towards no vaccines going forward except for finishing the Hep B doses (only
1 left). My wife is pro-vaccine. We compromised on doing a modified schedule to pace out the injections so it wasn't so many chemicals all at

She gets home and gets a call from the doctor saying they messed up and they gave him all five that were scheduled (RV, DTaP, Hib, PCV, and IPV) and
we don't need to bring him in till the 4 month checkup.

she's not at fault for the mess up, but it would've been avoided had we decided to not vaccinate. I'm also blaming myself for not pushing the "no
vaccine" stance that I admittedly have recently taken up (so much fear mongering on both sides of the argument). I certainly could've presented my
Help and advice is greatly appreciated!
