  • I think it was about the same amount...I requested EMLA cream to numb the area before the appt.

  • Do you mean how many vaccines are in each injection? I'm not sure but they should be giving you paperwork that says what the combo shots are.

    I do know the oral one is rotavirus. The leg ones are the combos.

  • My son got one shot in each thigh and the oral rotavirus...it was the same shots as his 2 month so that was why I was not as worried. I believe he got about 3-4 shots in the leg ones, not sure how they are split up...one for hepititis I think...and then the other one for polio...whooping cough, and then something flu, but not the regular flu, its some type of a menengitis babys can get. I think that is it.

  • Did the EMLA cream work in the long run or just at the actual time of the shots? My son had a really sore leg later that night, did the EMLA cream help?
