Reactions to Vaccines

It’s normal to feel apprehensive about potential reactions to vaccines, especially if your toddler is getting one he’s not had in the past.

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.

Never disregard, avoid or delay contacting a doctor or other qualified professional because of something you have read in our emails, webpages or other electronic communications.
