2. Good question. And at what ages would they have to get them.
We're already giving babies in their first two years a couple dozen doses of vaccines -- many more than in Europe. It seems that we're adding vaccines to the schedule without prioritizing them. If a baby's mother doesn't have hep B, for example, then her baby wouldn't be likely to get it, since it's spread the same way HIV is. And yet we give the vaccine to infants instead of waiting till they're closer to an age where they might have sexual activity (such as age 10 or so.)
