Did your child have reaction to the chicken pox vaccaine booster or initial shot?

Not sure if its concidence or the shot. My DS who had bad reactions to MMR and other ones when he was younger.  He is a teenager and has a high fever now. It is 102 and he can barely walk (not good since he is taller then me and hard to move him).

I have a call into dr and will probably end up at ER. Does anyone know of other sympthoms to look for if it is related to the shot?

  • My kid actually got the chicken pox from the shot but had no fever.

  • They can cause muscle weakness and soreness throughout the entire body. But I would still go get it checked out to be sure!

  • My pediatrician told me to expect a reaction about 3 weeks after the shot, what did your information sheet say?
