The nurses who administer the vaccines at CHA have a very good article  
from the journal Pediatrics regarding the Vaccine Book and the  
alternative schedule as well as some very good evidence-based  
literature from the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia Vaccine  
Education Program. You may want to request a copy of these and read  
them before deciding to use the alternative schedule. Keep in mind too  
that the alternative schedule many parents request involves about 12  
extra visits and 22 extra shots. That said, we see Callahan at CHA (on  
the regular vaccine schedule) and she is willing to do whatever it  
takes to get kids immunized including the alternative schedule. Karen
