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?
It is fine: The most common to all are local site soreness. The next would be swelling or redness in the muscle where one is injected. Rarely a person is allergic to some component of the vaccine & hives might occur. The immune "stress" on the body is well tolerated. That combo adds up to a fraction of the stress the old smallpox vaccine had alone. I consider separate day dosing on a kid a form of child abuse ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
