Sure: Of course. Any medication or vaccination can cause side effects at any age. Mostly it will be local reaction such as soreness, redness and pain/itching or global such as feeling crummy, fever, etc.

Yes: Serious ones, probably not. Fever, achiness, rashes are all possible, and they may occur several weeks later.
