I had a very bad scare today when the GP gives my baby 2 jabs of 6 in 1 vaccination instead of one. I had to make a number of phone calls before I get assurance from the doctor in charge that it has the same effectiveness as mixing the vaccination. Although I was given assurance, I still wished that the GP could have followed the standard method. I still have this little fear that the effectiveness of the vaccination has been reduced and/or there will be adverse side effects.
Did anyone encounters the same unlucky situation as mine? Is your baby doing fine?
actually the doctor in charge said that it was an oversight from that GP. The doctor in charge assures me that it is still effective. My baby was really unlucky to meet that GP.
I would like to check if anyone been through the same situation as mine and how they handled it.
Is actually not a double dose of 6 in 1. For a 6 in 1 jab, there are 2 components. These 2 components are supposed to be mixed together before giving it to the baby. However this GP injected these 2 components separately.
