As a child I had several febrile seizures, always following a DTP vaccine. This is the main reason my 20 month old son has not had any vaccinations. About 2 weeks ago, he had a febrile seizure anyway. We were going to start vaccinations soon, but now I'm very nervous about him having another seizure. What would you recommend?
febrile seizure and vaccines
With YOUR reactions to the DTP, I'd avoid the DTaP at least. Hep A and Flu vaccine also have a higher risk of febrile Seizures than other vaccines. The fact that your child just had a febrile seizure doesn't mean you shouldn't do some vaccines, in my opinion. But I would probably only do one at a time when you do them, just to possibly lower the risk of a febrile seizure reaction.
