Have you or any of your kids ever had a reaction to a shot?

JessP's post about the chicken pox made me wonder about this. Also, how did it affect how you feel about vaccines, have you been hesitant to get any/certain ones?

well I guess you know my answer then . I am only worried about the chicken pox vaccine at this point. The only other reaction is the injection area.

My boys have always been a little fussy for a few hours after their shots, but nothing major. When I got the meningitis vaccine when I was in college my arm got kind of puffy and sore for a few hours but nothing major. I'm not too worried about reactions because it seems like the major reactions are soreness (no big deal), a mild case of whatever disease you're getting vaccinate for (not as big of a deal as a full blown case of the disease) and a fever (which you can get from any disease).

Nothing major. Low grade temp a few times, pain at injection site .... When I got my seasonal flu shot my muscle felt sore but was gone when I woke the next day. So no, nothing that would prevent me from vaccinating & no abnormal reactions.
My 3yr old son Landan died 23hrs after being diagnosed with Meningococcal Meningitis. It is a potentially vaccine preventable disease. The vaccine isn't on the schedule until 11-12yrs but is approved for use at age 2yrs. Our second son received the vaccine in December 2010 when he was 2yrs old. My son & thousands of other children prove that a vaccine is needed at a younger age.
