My baby boy got his 2 month shots today. He was supposed to get the rotarix as well, but the idiot nurse gave it to him as a shot in his leg. They then proceeded to give him another dose orally. Do I need to worry about the shot in his leg; and do I need to worry about getting essentially two doses?
i really dont think u need to worry they dont just hire people off the street when i was younger they tricked me they said theyd give me 1 shot and ended up giving me 2 in both arms and 1 on the leg if i recall corectly but i wouldnt worry i understand as a parent your probly paranoid but i wouldnt be i evan got sick if i recall after they gave me the shot but i turned out fine hope this helps,jdy123
