Severe Vaccine Reaction (Definition)

Studies using these systems are ongoing and none to date have confirmed reports of any significant association between most vaccines and severe side effects that would outweigh the benefits of these important and lifesaving agents. No vaccine is 100% safe. Allergic and serious reactions are possible. In 2 cases, the early oral live polio vaccine and the first rotavirus vaccine, problems did occur, and some were serious. It is important to note, however, that even in these cases, the vaccines were withdrawn and the severe events were still far fewer than the number of lives saved. Both of these vaccines have been changed ...Read more

4 year old received Kinrix (Dtap/IPV) vaccine yesterday and has large bruise, mild swelling and hard knot at injection site - normal?

Not uncommon: These vaccines are injected into muscle which may knot up for several days after the injection.If the needle passes through a small vein during the injection it can bleed more than usual, producing the bruise. The swelling would be a response to both. It is not uncommon or considered an "allergic" response. ...Read more

My son took 4 doses of IPV so far and now he is 4 years and a half. The vaccine is out of stock , is it ok to wait or shall I rush and give him OPV?

OK to wait.: A booster IPV is recommended between ages 4 and 6, so he if he doesn't get the booster for another 12 months, he is still protected. That should be plenty of time to get new stock. ...Read more

Which vaccine is more effective? IPV or OPV fir preventing polio For kids ?

Which vaccine is more effective? IPV or OPV fir preventing polio For kids ?

Polio vaccines: OPV is more effective at preventing polio as it is a live attenuated virus. That being said , the risk to being administered the OPV is higher as polio is pretty much eradicated from the world, and the only cases of paralytic polio are from the oral vaccine. So, IMHO, the decision to go with the inactivated vaccine is the correct one and OPV is no longer available in the US. ...Read more

3 dozes of polio vaccine are over for our baby.We are moving to india.They give only opv not ipv in india.What shud I do for booster doze at 4 yrs.

OPV is fine: The OPV was the standard polio vaccine in the US from about 1960 to 1990's and only replaced by the IPV due to the rare Polio cases associated with OPV. (immune compromised patients).It remains a standard for most of the world and promotes immunity to the same strains included in the shot. ...Read more

If we miss 1st dose of ipv Hib rotavirus vaccine along with 1st dose of opv hepb DPT can it be taken along with 2nd dose to my child who is of 75old?

If we miss 1st dose of ipv Hib rotavirus vaccine along with 1st dose of opv hepb DPT can it be taken along with 2nd dose to my child who is of 75old?

Not advised: It is not a huge problem if you miss a dose of vaccines. Hepatitis- if your child has no high risk behaviors, it can wait. Ipv- polio is unlikely in the continental United States so if it is a few months late, no problem. Rotavirus cannot be given after 8 months so ask your pediatrician bout that. Hib can be caught up later. Often less reactions to all vaccines when given a little older. ...Read more
