Yeah, I think they got
DTP...... in a series of 3 boosters
MMR......once at 15 months
Polio...... once, maybe twice by kindergarten entrance.

Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Measle Mumps and Rubella and Polio......and that was it. (sorry if they aren't spelled that took me years to figure out what all the letters stood for....LOL!)

No Varicella, no Hib, or Hep or Roto-virus or anything like that. I am amazed at the number of vaccinations kids get now days.

Heck I remember getting the polio vaccination in elementary school in a sugar cube. I also got a small pox vaccination when I was born......I think they stopped giving that out shortly afterwards.
