Shots and concerns.

My son is 8 months old and he has had ear infections so much that he is not up todate with his shots. He doesnt have his 6 month shots but his 4 month shots got him sick. He ran a temperature of 102.0 for 2 days straight then it went to 103.1. Now he has a lump in his leg where the shot was injected and this was over 2 months ago. He has to go in next month I am concerned. SHould I ask to get his shots seperate or what should I do?

  • well a four month old having such a horrible fever has to be the first sign that the shots did it!!! i would NOT TAKE MY CHILD back to get any of his shots.. a 103.1 temp for such a small being can be deadly!!! if i were you i woudnt give him his shots. and by the way he is acting with his temp and lump i hope you dont do it.. because those are very bad signs...

  • You can wait till he is older to get shots. Say 5 or soo. Talk to your Dr. about waiting till he is older when his body can handle it better.

  • I would surely get the lump checked out. I think I would wait on the shots. Talk to the Dr. about that, or find one that will work with you. That is a pretty bad reaction. That would definitely make me do some research!

  • Call and ask what do they think. In the meanwhile, try to keep him from sicken again. It is definitely a bad idea to vaccainate him while he is sick. Toxic and more toxic. how he gets better.

  • I got his 4 month shots at 7 months old adn this is what happened. Does this make a difference?

  • no it should especially because he was older, his body is now in contact with more things which builds his immune system.. it shouldnt have happened at all ESPECIALLY later
