Should this be something of concern?

"if a child was vaccinated with a vial of PedvaxHIB® or COMVAX® that contained B. cereus or other microorganisms, there may be a risk of developing localized or disseminated infections. Immunocompromised children may be at the greater risk for these infections. These infections are most likely to occur within one week after vaccination"
Any adverse reaction should be reported to VAERS.
