Even if you are for vaccines, do you ever get just a little bit nervous when you take your child for them?

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.....

Not really. I feel bad that it's going to hurt, but based on my two experiences so far it only lasts a couple minutes. I know that reactions are so unlikely that it's not worth the worry.

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.
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.
