Side effects from immunizations are usually minor. For example, swelling around the site of the injection, or a slight redness to the skin. The type of side effect your child may experience depends on the vaccination they have been given.
Other side effects may include fever, sickness, diarrhea, and swollen glands. A non-aspirin pain reliever such as acetaminophen (after age three months) or ibuprofen (after age six months) can help with residual achiness, as well as with any low-grade fever.

A fever is the bodies natural response to the vaccine. It means the vaccine is working and the body is responding.
