My baby is on antibiotics for an ear infection, are there any reasons I shouldn't get him his scheduled MMR? If not why? And how long should I wait after he finishes them?

Oh sorry I missed this. I'd get advice from your paediatrician or family doctor on this one. :)

Thanks, as it turned out he developed a bad amoxicillin rash and we had to stop it early. We'll be getting the shot on Monday. Although I was wondering if you knew if it would be safe to do hep b, mmr and pneumococcal together? I will ask our doctor as well but I'm sure she'll just say "yeah it's fine". :)

Sorry to hear about the rash.

I'd trust a doctor over strangers online about vaccine combinations! I've never heard of any problems combining, and it can be a lot less stressful for the child. Does mean that if there is a reaction (unlikely) you can't know which vaccine it was linked to, so some people prefer not to.
