Immunizations
Dear Doc, I hope I will be able to get some advice.....
My newborn is due for his 6 weeks immunizations, which is:
First Infanrix (6 in 1)
First Prevenar
First Rotarix
With my firstborn I had immunizations done at a private clinic, but due to the expense of these (the last 2 are new apparently, but necessary) I have decided to use a government clinic, I have heard that the after effects will be worse, is there such a big difference as these have to be given on the same day?
Many thanks

There is no difference in the quality of the vaccines in the State clinics and there is no truth to the story that you have heard that the after effects will be worse.
