Reaction. There has been a controversy when it comes to vaccination and reactions to it. I strongly recommend that my patients educate themselves and take a proactive stand when it comes to theirs or their children's health. There are websites like: www.Mercola.Com, www.Russellblaylockmd.Com, www.Nvic.Org. You get the opinion of both osteopathic and allopathic physicians.
Pain reliever & TLC. Most "reactions" to vaccines are mild. Your baby may be sleeping, a little cranky, or be sore at the site of the injections. You can give Acetaminophen every 4 hrs, use warm compresses to the sore areas. If the baby has a fever over 101 degrees, or seems extremely irritable, call your doctor. Those types of reactions are very rare. All reactions pass within about 24-36 hrs after vaccination.
Plan with the doctor. Bad reactions to vaccines are extremely rare, so a parent can talk with the doctor to find out if a reaction is really from a vaccine, and also to estimate the likelihood of a repeat reaction if a future vaccination is given. A reaction to one vaccine doesn't necessarily mean there will be a reaction to a different vaccine, and there are many different baby vaccines during the first 2 years.
