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.

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