Delaying Vaccination

So, my son is 3 and five months. He is totally vaccination free and I LIKE this. However, I am concerned about him entering school. I live in MN, which allows philosophical exemption. I do, however, want him to be healthy and safe. Will he be healthy and safe in a public school system if he is entirely vax free? Possibly not.

I am not sure what I should do for vaccinations with him. I have done a lot of research. I just don't know how to time things, what to get with what.. or when.

Is there a delayed vaccination schedule anywhere? Can some of you who have delayed vaxes tell me what you got and when.. and why?

Have you looked at Dr. Sears' recommended vax schedule?

My son also just turned 3 (and we also live in MN). We didn't start vax on him until he was about 9 mos. old. At this rate, he's only gotten 2 shots at a time. I sat down with the doc and discussed out options.

There are some vax that you can pass on after they turn a certain age because they only apply to infants for example.
