    Does anyone know a Paediatric Doc who supports delaying vaccination?

    Hi there, just wondering if there are other parents in HK who have delayed one or more vaccines? And if so, who was your doctor? And how long did you delay for? Thanks :o)

    When I want to avoid a vaccination, and do not wish to be lectured by a PD, I see Dr. Gerald Wong, who is from Lauren Bramley and Associates. The PD there is Dr. Ken Chan, he is nice and will tell me I'm being silly but respects my wishes. He will never press me for anything I'm not comfortable with. If he does feel strongly about it, he will nag a little.

    My son's vaccination scheduled was delayed and my daughter has had no vaccinations since she was 4 months old. He is now almost 6 years old, and we've had no dramas and she's 17 months, again, so far no dramas.

    I have both delayed and declined Vaccinations. We use Dr Thondup and he has been supportive of my decisions

    Vaccination schedules

    Dear Quasimother or anyone else in the know,

    Could you please post exactly what vax schedule you are using (which shots at what ages, etc..)?
    Anyone know what the delayed vaccination schedule from Dr. Sears looks like? Any details would be greatly appreciated.
    Also, any definitive answer as to whether vaccines in HK are thimerosal-free or not? AND, has anyone had success finding separate MMR vaccines and with which doctor?

    Most people will go with Hong Kong as they are living and breathing Hong Kong air and diseases:

    There are a few select parents who wont be here very long and wish to follow their own countries schedule but vast majority follow Hong Kong.

    Ask your doctor and/or check internet when you find out the brand that is being recommended. Different doctors use different ones.

    has anyone had success finding separate MMR vaccines and with which doctor?
    No country in the world recommends giving the three vaccines separately and since that kook Wakefield was thoroughly discredited, what possible reason could you have to separate the vaccines?

    rnih, I saw a post stating that Dr Richard Chui recommends doing seperate jabs and for Mmr delaying it a bit if you are concerned about the autism issue.

    There is no Autism issue.

    It was a health scare perpetuated by a discredited doctor which has now been thoroughly debunked.
