My doctor gave me through rubella vaccine and chicken pox vaccine at the same time. I read on some fact sheet that it shouldn't be. Is this ok?

In brief: Sure, no problem!

Most vaccines can be given together. For example, the routine kindergarten shots are: measles/mumps/rubella, chickenpox, polio, diphtheria/tetanus/whoopingcough .
. . Which equals 4 injections (2 in each arm) at the same office visit.

In brief: It is ok

You can give it on the same day but administer it on two separate limbs.

In brief: Yes

These can/should be given on the same day to avoid an unnecessary extra visit.
If not done on the same day they should be at least a month apart.
