Immunization and Achieving Immunity

There are always questions about immunization, especially amidst a flood of pieces of misinformation, widely present in the
Internet. Many parents have a tendency to delay vaccination for one reason or another; many parents want the immunization to be
not given at the same visit, as the schedule suggests. We come across this issue frequently. We advise that all required
vaccinations be given at the same time. The reason is simple; that is if not given together, an interval of more than 30 days
will be required between the administration of live virus infections for the best effect. The purpose of administering vaccines
is to achieve immunity to the diseases that can be prevented. If not given at the suggested intervals, the effectiveness of
vaccines may be diminished. It is best to give all immunizations at the recommended times in life.
