Concerned about having your child receive multiple vaccines at a time?

It's completely safe to have children get multiple shots all in one day, or one doctor's appointment. Getting more than one at a time doesn't overload the child's immune system. It doesn't harm them. 

Have you heard about combination vaccines? Combo vaccines contain more than one type of germ in them to reduce the number of pokes your child gets. An example of this would be the measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella vaccine--it would be a hassle to have to get four different shots, but thankfully, all four pathogens are within just one shot, called the MMRV vaccine! It's a great way to get your children all the protection they need with minimal injections.
