Is it safe for a 15 month old to get an MMR and chicken pox and second dose of the regular Flu vaccine all at one time? I am worried he will get sick, he has a cough now so I canceled my appointment until 2 weeks from today which will put him at 15 months and 3 weeks, is it safe to do all 3 together or should I separate? He just got over a 3 day 104 degree fever from the first does of the flu shot and I am worried all 3 will not be good.
It's common to give several vaccinations at one visit. The MMR and Chicken pox are live vaccines and must be given on the same day or separated by 30 days. They are given subcutaneously. The flu shot in an inactivated vaccine and is given intramuscularly. It would be a good idea to wait until he is completely well to get any vaccinations
