Hi Dr. My daughter who is 11 years old received total 3 doses of injectable Polio and MMR, one in 2003, 2nd one in 2012 and 3rd one was today (2014) evening which my family physician discovered from her system after administering the vaccines. I am upset about this and remain concerned. What may be the consequence of these overdoes? What am I supposed to do, so that my child remain safe?
