Do u think this is vaccine related?

My son received the DTAP and HIB vaccines on tuesday. That evening I noticed a rash on his back but didn't think too much of it because he often gets small rashes like that. However it has also spread to his belly and a little bit higher on his back. I plan on taking him in to have it checked tomorrow.

Do you think it is a reaction to one of those vaccines?

  • it is good to take your son back to the doc. you can ask the dr. to report it as a possible reaction to the vaccine. you could also report it yourself at www.vaers.hhs.gov/

  • It's very possible. I would be calling the pedi to let them know.
