Question: 

My son has will have his flu shot on Monday and kindergarten vaccine on Tuesday. Is it ok to do them back to back?

Answer: 

Yes, that is ok. These vaccines can be given on the same day, or any time before or after each other. Let the person who gives the kindergarten vaccines know where the flu shot was given. You can leave a bandaid where the flu shot was given to mark the spot. Giving them close together won't increase any likelihood of side effects. Read more about safety of vaccines here.
