Child received same vaccinations from family doctor and Health Department. Any concerns?

My 9 month old grandson received his Hepatitis B , pneumococcal conjugate vaccine , Rotavirus vaccine , polio virus vaccine, and DTaP HiB IPV combined vaccine today from his family doctor even though he had been given the same vaccinations on December 4th at the Health Department. Are there any concerns pertaining to this situation now or in the future?

thanks for writing

the upper age limit for rota virus vaccine is 8 are saying that the vaccine is given at the age of 9 months

this is also not the normal age at which these vaccine are given ( unless you forget to give these vaccines at the usual age of 6, 10,14 weeks

but now the baby is 9 months

may be there is some confusion some where
normally measles vaccine is given at this age

so pl check the same and reply back to us for further help

9mth old child receiving all these vaccines is right but u said he has got it twice.. but exactly the same vaccines might not have given at both the nothing to worry at all..and for ur info evn if the vaccine has been given twice there is nothing to worry as not giving the vaccine is more dangerous..
so relax and stop worrying but next time u go for vaccine i advise u to carry with u the vaccine record of the child , so that everything will be clear and unnecessary repeat injections are not given to the baby ..
so take good care of the baby and be sure to carry the health record always with u ..

I appreciate your concern for your grandson.
I feel that there is some confusion regarding same vaccines would not have been repeated,rotavirus final dose is given by the age of 32 weeks or 8 months,
there is no harm even if some of the vaccines are repeated.but i request you to kindly maintain proper record and always carry you immunisation record with you before getting him vaccinated next time.
Your grandson will be fine.
