Is it ok to get the hep a, hep b, mmr, varicella, and prevnar (pneumococcal vaccine) 13 vaccines at the same time? if there is side effects, how quickly would they occur?

Mgt: They can be given at the same time, but if you are concerned about the pain/local reactions, you can opt to have them administered on separate days. Please discuss having your flu vaccine this season with your physician.
