Custom Immunization Scheduler - Please Advise Me!

First of all, let me say that I do NOT believe that vaccines cause autism. However, having a newborn son, I have been looking at the recommended vaccine schedule. The BabyCenter.com website has a custom immunization scheduler, where you can enter your child's birthday and it will give you an outline of what vaccines your child should have when. http://www.babycenter.com/immunization-scheduler I was looking at it, and there are a lot of shots given at one time! Autism aside, it seems like this is a lot for a baby to handle at once!

Here was what the website listed for my son:

I want my son to be vaccinated, since I believe that it is very important. However, are there any other options than having so many at one visit? Please let me know!
