My GI told me that my daughter (6 weeks) shouldn't get any LIVE vaccinations until 6 months because I had a remicade treatment in the 3rd trimester. Yesterday at my 6 week OB checkup my dr said that applies to ALL immune suppresant drugs, not just remicade. Although 2 different drs in my family practice agreed that none of the vac they get are LIVE these days (remade over and over from a part of an old live vac) but I held off on the HEP B shot at the hospital as well. In 10 days when my daughter goes to get her 2 month shots, I'll talk with our family dr again (I'm sure he's going to get annoyed with my CONSTANT questions about
this topic) and make SURE that she's only getting the ones that she is ok to have at this point although I don't think there will be any issues. They don't give the rotovirus vac here to every child..but each state may be different.
Talk with your GI and your Family dr/pediatrician to be sure!!!
