Thanks.

Dear Regina,

Indeed there would be no problem. However, why don't you ask your doctor to give combination vaccines - there is a penta combination which has DPT, Hep B and Hib. This will be one injection. The OPV and Rotateq will go orally. The second shot will be Injectable Polio vaccine. The third shot will be Synflorix.
