Can they give high fevers 4 days later in babies?

DD had the flu shot last friday, DD had 104.7 fever at 10:30pm, tuesday night, gave her some ib profen and it

went down to 100.3 2 hours later. I am thinking about taking her to the dr, but she has no really other

symptoms beside being really fatigued, but she will eat n play still.


UPDATE:

took her to doctor and er yesterday, she has a viral infection, we have another appt with the doctor today to get blood results back from the lab yesterday.


Update 10/13/12

Thursday found out dd anemic, they still haven't figured out what going on with her, every blood n urine test have come back normal beside her being anemic.

yes, those are radical antivax sites, and i would NEVER advocate trusting them...what i posted was actually court compensation for flu injuries caused by the shot.. as fas as the other post i put up, can you point out where there is false claims?  And,  fwiw, i am NOT antivax, i am PRO CHOICE...There IS a difference, and when you have a vaccine injured child, somehow a parent isn't willing to take that chance with subsequent siblings.  Why don't you put up some REAL links, proving what you're saying. 

Quoting DarlaHood:

A fever is possible.  Stick with the Ibuprofen and she'll be o.k.

I hate when all the anti-vax web sites come up.  The information is typically distorted or not put in perspective.  I just finished a big research project on this for my master's program.  The unfortunate thing is that accurate information is more difficult to find than the twisted information if you're simply googling.  The fact is if we all stopped immunizing our children, the first time a pandemic happened and our children started dying, everyone would be clamoring and fighting for a vaccination.

In all honesty... We don't get the Flu Shot

It isn't because of any research, or any article written...

My decision is based on the fact that EVERY time anyone of us in this family gets the Flu Shot, we ALL get sick within a week... and get sick every winter...

I worked at the Mall, during Christmas, and for months after... I didn't have a Flu Shot.. I just ate healthy foods, drank plenty of water, and washed my hands frequently...  I haven't had the Flu Shot since my younger daughter got the Swine Flu a few years ago... and yes, we were ALL vaccinated at the time..

I don't want to deal with the Hassle

I have a friend whose nephew died from the flu shot. He was 9 months old, and three days after he was vaccinated he was gone. I am sharing this because I want people to be aware that there are risks when getting vaccines. With a fever that high, I would be concerned. Fevers are our body's way of fighting illness, so they're not usually a bad thing. When they get high like that it can be scary. It sounds like you have the fever under control. There's not a whole lot the doctor can do for her if there aren't any other symptoms, but taking her in has to be your call. The doctor will most likely tell you it has no connection to the vaccine, though. It seems like your mother's intuition is telling you otherwise. Hope she's doing better today!

It is a live engineered virus.  So yes. You can get the flu from being injected with the flu.

I understood what you posted.  But it wasn't put into context.  There are millions of kids that get flu vaccines every year.  And there are comparatively an extremely small number of complications.  The flu also has complications, sometimes very serious and even fatal.  Also the idea that the flu shot makes it more likely to get the flu is flawed.  The research shows that people who get the flu develop broader immunities than those who just have the shot.  Well that doesn't mean that you are more likely to get the flu because you have the vaccine.  It will protect you from some strains.  However, if you are unlucky enough to get the flu, afterward your immunity is broader than someone who only had the vaccine. 

I'm not saying that all people have to get the flu shot.  I'm simply posting information that gives some context and additional perspective. 

Prochoice for vaccines does affect all of us. It puts others at risk where the vaccine is truly contraindicated for them.  However I am not suggesting that anyone be compelled to vaccinate their child.  And I am not suggesting that someone who has had a child injured by a vaccine should not have fears about that.  Certainly that would create legitimate concern because it's very personal.  But when making a choice, dwelling on 10 extreme cases out of millions skews the overall context for the decision.  While all of this misinformation goes around and scares people out of getting vaccines, we forget that tens of thousands of kids died of whooping cough alone prior to vaccine.  I am old enough to remember a number of my grandmother's friends with severe disabilities from polio.  Vaccines are statistically one of the least risky medical procedures we can have.  Are there cases where side effects are an issue?  yes.  That is true with ANY medical procedure - even taking antibiotics.  But the reduction in mortality and morbidity from disease FAR outweighs the potential harm from vaccinations.  Our kids are have MUCH less risk of adverse events by vaccinating as opposed to not vaccinating.

I did put up "real links" from nih, cdc, and others.  However, to understand the full story, you would have to read the research, which requires access to research libraries where peer reviewed, empirical studies are published.  There are links to some articles on the nih and cdc websites, which I pointed out.

It was a 6 day Flu for my daughter...It was horrible.. She was in the hospital, hooked up to IV's and in an oxygen tent... She was the only one in our house to get it... I  was shocked I didn't get it, because I was with her 24/7 during that time...
