Hi! I'm Dr. Bridget.

Which two vaccines are you referring to?

Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 1 year ago.

In general, Live vaccines should be administered on the same day. If they are not given on the same day, you should wait at least four weeks to get a second live vaccine.

Please feel free to reply with further details or follow-up questions. This is just my initial answer, and I 'd like to work with you to ensure you get your problem solved.

When you're all set, a positive rating is much appreciated. Thank you!
