Can we mix two vaccine for vaccination to gain same affect? (vaccinations are hepatitis b and rotavirus, 3 months old baby)
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.
Vaccines. Yes. But, your baby's doctor will tell you the correct schedule and timing of the appropriate vaccination.
If you have a injection of Hepatitis B and Rabies vaccinations, do you have to have the next two injections in the course from the same brand? Thanks
Any brand is ok. No it doesn't have to be the same brand. For those particular immunizations it doesn't matter which brand you choose. . Read more...
