Reactions to Vaccines

Q: “How can I tell if my child is having a reaction to a vaccine?”

A: Vaccines are among the safest, most effective treatments given to children. In most cases, any side effects are minor, such as a low-grade fever or soreness at the injection site.

Severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis, which can range from abdominal pain to difficulty breathing and swallowing) to vaccines are rare. Ask your child’s doctor about any potential reactions specific to the vaccine your child has received.
