What if I get a multiple vaccines less then 4 weeks apart, and if I bruise or bleed easy?
For timing of vaccines, this depends on whether it is an inactivated vaccine (made from a killed germ) or live attenuated vaccine (made from a weakened version of the germ). Live vaccines must be given on the same day or separated by 4 weeks. Inactivated vaccines do not have to be separated from one another by 4 weeks.
Individuals with bleeding disorders should discuss this with the immunizing health care professional prior to immunization. If you have a diagnosed bleeding disorder, your doctor may provide directions for care during/after immunization.
