MMR and Swollen Neck Lymph Node?

My 2 yr old got MMR vaccine, 7 days later she developed a low grade fever. I recently noticed a swollen lymph node on the side of her neck. Could this be from the vaccine? It is a little larger than 1 cm. She also had a sandpaper like rash on her forehead.

I’m sorry, but I am not a medical expert.  I am a computer scientist who manages the website which presents the U.S. Government’s VAERS data.

You can use MedAlerts to search for other similar events.  If you type “lymph” into the “WriteUp” field (in section 2 of the search form) and select the MMR vaccine in Section 3 of the search form, you will find over 800 events.  You can then examine them to see if they appear to be similar to your situation.

Good luck
