In brief: Rarely if ever
Before 1992 the DPT vaccine was well known for irritability, high fever & occasional fevers.
The mmrv combo shot has been linked to high fever & occasional seizures in 1 yo's . That said, the newer dtap vaccine eliminated the side effects while improving the vaccine & physicians rarely give the mmrv to 1yo any more. The listed brain effects were temporary but led to realistic changes in use.

In brief: Yes....
It is well documented that after vaccines patients have experienced extreme irritability, seizures, high fevers, and screaming for hours .
..All of which are "brain side effects". In addition many parents have reported developmental regression after vaccines which is also a neurologic problem.
