Toddlers Will Get Vaccines for SIX Diseases at Once

Toddlers in the UK are going to be inoculated against six diseases at once in an attempt to boost vaccination rates. The chief medical officer has told doctors to give the vaccines during a single surgery visit once a baby has passed his or her first birthday.

The procedure will involve three injections to protect against measles, mumps, rubella, two forms of meningitis and bacteria that can cause pneumonia. Under the previous timetable, a month separated the two meningitis jabs from the other vaccinations.

The Daily Mail reports:

“A vaccine can trigger side effects including pain at the site of injection, fever, irritability, stomach upsets and headaches.”
