Babies in UK to be offered Rotavirus vaccine - Page 2
HIB and MMR were not tested together in 1991 when my DD received the MMR. The pediatrician also did not administer the DPT with MMR. She got the MMR alone.

Oh, BTW, you do realize the quote you provided above was not the vaccine insert for MMR II don't you? It was Meruvax II (Rubella).
The point is he was using science. However, babies can still given the MMR together with DTaP and polo at 15 months which isn't backed by science.
No, the point is that 21 years ago there had ot been any safety testing of the two together, so this doctor was being cautious. In the meantime that safety testing has happened and shown its actually fine to give both vaccines together. So the advice is now out of date.
I realize that is what she is saying. However, it has NOT been shown to be 'safe' to give the MMR with the DTaP or Polio, which is recommended.
That's why we split ours up. Half at the normal wbv and half a month later. I know the chances are incredibly slim that anything beyond cranky kids will happen, but if it does I want to know which one to tell the doctor it was so we can skip it when we go in for the next round.
