    My son had his 4 year old check up and he got the four shots (DtaP, IPV, MMR and Varicela). THe thing is that he had already received those 8 months ago. I think they didn't notice. Is this dangareous? can he have a bad reaction? Please a need help to find out what the case is. He got the same shots twice within eight months.

    I wouldn't expect any kind of problem. How is your son doing?

    Dr. Benaroch,
    Thank you for your response. My son is doing good. The story goes that I was told that it was a computer mistake. He apparently didn't receive the same shots 8 months ago. At that time, he had been seen for a sick visit, so they say he couldn't have received them then, as it appeared on the records. I hope they are accurate about it. So far, he is doing fine.
    Thank you.
