No: Anithistamines suppress histamine release - (histamine does create a local immune reaction/response to triggers) but taking an antihistamine won't affect the efficacy of the vaccinations you received or your bodies immune response to the vaccination.

A 30-year-old female asked:

My baby is one month and 25 days she just took the rota vaccinatin and vommited right after 2 minutes is that ok or do I have to repeat the vaccination?

Repeat if desired: A general "rule of thumb" for oral meds is any vomiting within 15 minutes loses all the med & if needed it can be repeated. Vomiting after 30 minutes not so much.I try to let a kids stomach settle for an hour or so before repeating any med. I'm not a particular fan of this vaccine & don't consider it one of the must haves.
