The Facts About Vaccinations - Page 2

By JustMommies

For older babies and children, positive reinforcement and distraction works well. Be honest with your children. Tell them that it might hurt for a second, but that they can get through it. Make sure you bring along their favorite toy or item from home too.

If you, the parent or perhaps the child’s grandparent have to go to the doctors for any blood tests or shots, bring the child along. Show them that adults get shots too.

Vaccination side effects

If any redness or swelling appears at the injection sites, apply a warm compress. You can do this by wetting a washcloth with lukewarm water and then applying it to the area(s).

Most side effects from vaccines are minor. A child may experience excessive fussiness, slight fever, swelling at the injection site and/or fatigue.

Thanks to constant advances in medicine, most serious contagious diseases are unheard of in the USA today, due to the effectiveness of vaccines.
