I worry more about the minor reactions, like a high fever or rash than any serious complications. I've done my research and I feel like the complications from a vaccine are far less common and far less serious than the actual disease. ETA: I meant rashes from rash-causing diseases like measles and chicken pox, not a general rash-y allergic reaction.
I just wish they could come up with a better way to give kids vaccines. I get more nervous about the needle than anything.
I really never have...I have always given him Tylenol before hand and then for 1 to 2 or so days after to keep a fever away just in case. I would be way more wary of him getting an actual horrible disease from not being vaccinated.....
Before Landan died I didn't really worry about anything like that. But even now I only really worry about the minor reactions because I've seen that these horrible diseases can do to someone. Even though Landan was too young for the vaccine that could have saved his life.
