No: A parent who asks a doctor to poke a child 3 times instead of one time will get the same answer from both the child and the doctor. No. In the real world, we avoid poking kids more times than needed, while still getting high levels of protection against preventable diseases. In the internet world, there are scary writings about any and all vaccines, and that's where some odd requests come from.

Not available: These vaccines have not been available to give as separate vaccines in this country for decades.
