    I have just arrived in HK from the UK and the advice from my doctor and the rest of the UK (which I am going to follow) is to have the combined MMR as close to 12months as possible.

    The advice in the UK is pretty comprehensive and as far as I can see, there is no case for not having the MMR done.

    My LO is 13 months, and I delayed having the jab in the UK as it would mean it coincided with jet-lag / general upheaval of moving. But now that we are almost settled, I'm going to book the jab as soon as I can.

    as Nanzbier also questions, what's wrong with Prevnar (and what is it?)

    http://www.keepkidshealthy.com/prevnar.html

    This link has some info. on prevnar- the site is undoubtedly pro-prevnar, so it might be worth doing more research on the risks.

    http://www.mercola.com/2001/feb/21/prevnar_vaccine.htm

    This link is definetly anti-prevnar.

    I think with so much information circulating it is best to speak to a pediatrician that you trust and ask for their opinion. This is what I plan to do, as the info.is so contradictory.

    thanks for the info bekyboo44! is there a huge difference in getting mmr shot one time or separate it into 3 times? I would like to get the shot separated into 3 times, however, I live in china and that would mean i have to bring her in three times! Has anyone's child had bad reaction to the one time shot?
