Three questions

A - Is one deemed more effective than the other?

B - If you've had one type already, are you best off sticking to the same one for the booster?

C - Which strain is in the MMR triple?

D - Yes I know I said only 3 questions but has anyone used the babyjabs clinic in Wimpole Street run by Dr Richard Halvorsen?

A - There is no consistent data on the EZ strain, the Rouvax single has been found to be very effective in UK kids http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2798746

B - that really doesn't matter

C - either Priorix (Schwarz) or MMR vaxpro (Enders' Edmonston)

D - not me

Yes and he was great, gave some great advice. We dont live in the UK but had a phone consultation with him, I had questions after and he emailed me back.
