Just wondering if anyone else has had an experience with reactions to vaccinations? My son had his check up on 4/6/2010 and was given mmr and the chicken pox vac(don't remember the name). Everything seemed fine...On Sunday, out of no where, he developed a high fever(104.7)-we were able to bring it down with tylenol/Ibuprofen and he showed NO signs of any other symptons. The next morning his fever broke and I noticed a large raised, red welt in the EXACT location the injectiton was given. His ped did not think it was from the shot...but I have been reading up a lot on this one and it seems they can have a reaction as late as 21 days LATER! He is absolutely fine now and the bump is no longer...just wondering what and if anything has happened to anyone like this, too?
