  • It depends on the shot she gets. Some shots she is crying for a few seconds but then its all good. Never any problems after the shots. No fever or anything like that. Just tired for the rest of the day.

  • Mine all did fine, they were sore on the legs where they put the shots but motrin worked for that. They also had a slight fever and again motrin fixed that. They were sleepy a little after as well, some of them more then others.

  • Mine actually had a moderate to severe reaction with a fever of 105 for four days straight and convulsions. After doing research we decided against getting anymore shots.

  • I haven't had a small child vaxed in 5 years. My youngest doesn't have any vaccines. But I think the older ones did okay. I can remember a lump on their legs afterwards.

  • Similar to anon 5:59, my youngest had a pretty severe reaction to his 2 month shots. We still haven't gotten any more, but will start up again doing 1 or 2 at a time here pretty soon.
