Has anyone else experienced this?

My daughter is 6 months old and just recieved her pentacel shot. She started to get really fussy recently and she started coughing and gagging. I took her to see a pediatrician but he couldn't find anything wrong with her except for a red swollen throat. Has anyone else experienced similar behavior with their babies after getting their shots?

  • My son coded-respiratory distress when he received his first set . He didn't get them again until last week in the Air Force. He had a little throat irritation, chest tightness-no he didn't tell anyone, that's grounds for discharge. He's fine now.
