  • My daughters would get fevers after getting their shots but my son never got sick. I usually just did what I could to keep them comfortable.

  • My kids both got horrible diarrhea after their shots. If we could go back I would probably not vaccinate them not just because of the diarrhea but other reasons as well. JMO.
    I think it's very common for kids to get sick after shots.

  • My dd was a little irritable. but otherwise ok. Doc would give her stuff for discomfort with the shots.

  • my son would run a slight fever for no more then 24 hours. I would just give him Motron and keep him comfortable.
