She cannot have both at the same time. The 15 month immunisation is the MMR and at 18 months the immunisation is polio and the combined vaccine which contains 4 different vaccines.

Hi Mel

At 15months they normally get the MMR injection. If they skip this, they get it at 18months along with Polio and DTP.

Yes, it is ok if she got both the DTP and MMR injections at the same time.
