Hi, yes, I think it is standard to give them all together. Not just in the UK but also in other countries BTW.

It is good to get it done asap as there have been some measles outbreaks and it takes a little while to build up sufficient immunity.

Thanks, just needed to know if this was typical.
Still I'm not happy to do them all.

I'm pretty sure mine had all three together.
They've all been fine after their jabs.
Dose up with calpol before you go, and make no plans for the day in case dd feels a bit off.

Or you can ask when you go if they could just do the mmr that day and return in a week or so for the other 2 maybe?

My ds is due to have mmr, meningitis and hib jabs.
He couldn't have mmr due to an ear infection and lots if anti b's so I was told I could leave it a while.
I have had a letter telling me to go along for all 3 jabs at once. Is this ok? I thought the mmr was quite a lot at once never mind adding men c and hib into it.
I don't have great faith in my GP at the moment.
Any comments? Any doctors that could advise me?
