Immunizations: Vaccination starts at birth- hepa-b in nursery. Then 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 months etc. Now it is easier bc there are combination vaccines, e.G pentacel- 5 different types in one shot (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, h. Influenza-b and polio); mmrv-4 together(measles, mumps, rubella and varicella at 1 year), rota vaccine is given by mouth. Combination vaccines has similar effect as given separate.

Mix ????: One of these is given by mouth, the other as a shot. You don't "mix" the material. They can be given on the same day at the same time and be effective.The immune system works selectively responding to each individual vaccine with a separate specific response. You can give as many vaccines on a single day as are needed.These have all been tested as a group to decide when they can be given at once
