I appreciate the responses specifically, explaining the importance of vaccinations in infancy i.e. prior to exposure to common childhood illnesses or even infections like Hepatitis B that might occur later. Also, separating out issues regarding concerns, hesitancy and refusal may help with developing best practices to address vaccine hesitancy and refusal. One method suggested has been using alternate schedules if there is vaccine hesitancy.

Is there evidence for or against the use of alternative vaccine schedules i.e. individualized schedules different from CDC. ACIP or AAP?
