AFTER VACCINATIONS
Sometimes children have mild reactions from vaccines, such as pain at the injection site, a rash, or a fever. These reactions are normal and will soon go away.
-Read the Vaccine Information Sheet(s) your child’s doctor gave you to learn about side effects your child may experience.
-Offer breastmilk and liquids more often. It is normal for some children to eat less during the 24 hours after getting vaccines.
-Pay extra attention to your child for a few days. If you see something that concerns you, call your child’s doctor.
