Combining H1N1 mist a reg flu shot

So a friend of mine told me she and her dd (2) had received their H1N1 vaccine. I wasn't surprised; she's a first time Mom who thinks the pedi still walks on water. I don't judge her decision at all. However, I was floored to hear her dd chad in fact received the H1N1 mist and received the reg flu shot, during the SAME visit!!

Wouldn't there be issues with her little body trying to produce all those multiple antibodies???

They are saying you can get it that way no problem, just not both mists at the same time. *eye roll* Whatever.

Since only the mist is a live vaccine, it shouldn't be a problem. A person just shouldn't receive two live vaccines at the same time.

What makes you say that, have you read a study that tested them together?

I cannot help but wonder what it would do to a child if the child got both the regular flu and the H1N1 at the same time. What is the difference???

She asked the same question that I asked my pediatrician, and I'm just sharing what my pediatrician said. Anyone is free to disagree.

So you just trust everything your pediatrician says?

I have heard Mom's say that their pediatrician's office would mail them a Package Insert...some say they admitted to not having one on hand, for a particular vaccine, at different times. That has always baffled me. Medicine has become so commercialized, it's no longer about *healing*.

Unfortunately most parents toss the insert in the trash and never bother to read it anyway. I used to as well

No to both questions, but if I find a clinical trial that concludes otherwise, I'll be sure to post it.

I would be interested in any clinical study done regardless of results if you come across any.
