Is it dangerous for my child to get a vaccine if he is sick?

Is it dangerous for my child to get a vaccine if he is sick?

No: No, it is not dangerous to get vaccines when ill. Remember that vaccines work by generating an immune response. The immune system needs to respond to the vaccine. If that immune system is very busy - such as fighting a serious infection, then it might not create a strong enough response. So only when seriously ill, shots may just not work as well. They do fine with mild and moderate infection. ...Read more

What if a blood vessel was hit when getting injected with Tdap vaccine? Would I be sick by now if i had gotten the vaccine in a vein??

What if a blood vessel was hit when getting injected with Tdap vaccine? Would I be sick by now if i had gotten the vaccine in a vein??

Tdap injection: The deltoid muscle is the site of injection for Tdap and most other vaccines in adults. That area is chosen because there are no major veins or arteries in the vicinity. It should have been relatively obvious to the person injecting the shot if they hit a vein or not - so I really doubt this happened. Vaccines may make you feel mildly unwell -because they're stimulating your immune system to fight ...Read more

The weakened virus (nasal flu,MMR, varicella) all have some potential to cause a low grade infection. Killed or synthetic material does not. ...Read more

If they want to turn the clock back to the 1800's for their kids health care, they can do so.
