Vaccination: Yes. They can be given together. Please refer to the cdc website for vaccination for more information.
Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics 46 years experience
Yes: Both can be given at the same time but not in the same syringe. The vaccines work on separate parts of the immune system that can work in parallel, allowing you to build your immunity to both at the same time.
