Q.

Spacing out Vaccinations

Hello Doc,
My baby turns 12 months next month, i would like to take her to the state clinic for her scheduled 12 month Vaccination and then book her at a private clinic for Chicken pox and Hepatitis A, which are not offered at state clinics.
Is it safe to have all these vaccinations done on one day?

No, your baby should not have these immunisations done on the same day. Let him have the Prevenar13 first and about 10 days later he can have the Hepatitis A immunisation,followed by the chicken pox vaccination 2 weeks later.
