Regarding double shots

In the process of switching pedatricians my son got two extra shots. One hib and one chicken pox. Is this harmful for him? I've been so paranoid about the whole vaccination issue but proceeded to vaccinate and now I've allowed him to more shot than he should have. I feel terrible and wanted to know if this could cause problems for him.

TIA

Hi Kelly - It's unlikely that the extra doses will result in a problem. Here's an article that addresses this concern:
