Should I do several vaccinations at the same time?

Ministry of Health of Ukraine

Vaccines come from one disease (from influenza or coronavirus, for example), from several diseases at the same time - such as KPK (measles, mumps, rubella) or AKDP (whooping cough, diphtheria, tetanus) and from several varieties of the same pathogen (vaccines from pneumococcal infection , human papilloma virus).

How does immunity respond to the vaccine?

When a vaccine reaches us, only some cells of the immune system come into contact with the components of the vaccine.

All others work as usual, so there is no overload of immunity.

But if we get sick, the immune system is faced with an influx of bacteria or viruses that actively harm and take all resources. Often, viruses and bacteria "deliberately" suppress the work of the immune system, or settle in its cells and destroy them, as in the case of measles or HIV. Therefore, it is an infectious disease that really burdens the immune system and can weaken it, and even kill a person.

Studies have shown that the use of multicomponent or polyvalent vaccines is safe and effective ( And also - convenient. Therefore, simultaneous vaccination against influenza and COVID-19 can be done - in different hands.

Vaccination with live vaccines (against chicken pox, PDA) can be done in one day or with a break of 1 month.

Vaccination against tuberculosis (BCG) can be done at the same time as vaccination against hepatitis B or with any interval between them. In the case of BCG and other vaccines, a break of 1 month is required.

Therefore, it is possible to be vaccinated with multicomponent vaccines at the same time, but it is not worth getting sick with even one infectious disease.
