Q.

injections - 14weeks

Hi Doc

Read your response. According to the 'Road to Health Chart' baby goes at birth (wich she did), 6weeks (which she did), 10weeks (wich she did) and 14 weeks (which she didn't).

She had her measles shot yesterday and the DTP3 / Hip3 (combined) and Hep B3 as well as Polio drops, which she should have received previously.

I am possitively sure that I took her for the DTP3 / Hip3 and Hep B3 shots already, but the nurse had forgotten to sign the chart.

Now, they gave it to her with the measles shot. What I want to know is, is it a good or bad thing that she had the measles shot and the DTP3 / Hip 3, and Hep B3 shots together and whether giving her the DTP3 / Hip 3, and Hep B3 shots again can effect her in any way - that is if had received double?

It is unlikely to cause her any harm as such but it is not usual practice to give any other immunisation at the time of the measles vaccine.
