Have you had vaccinations as a teen or adult and did you have a reaction with any? Would you say it was mild, moderate or severe…and do you know it was caused by vaccines or just suspect it was. Any long term ramifications?
As all disclaimers these days, lets keep it civil. I am not sure how anyone can argue with someone else's experience anyways
I have had two vaccines that I remember. One was when I was about 16, and one was about 5 years ago.
The one I had at 16 was MMR. I had a what I would term a moderate reaction - I had the shot at school, passed out (probably not from the MMR - but from the fact I was bad with needles) and spent the rest of the afternoon hallucinating. I thought I was a bug on the wall in math class, and I felt nauseous and very tired. Many kids went home that day - there were lots of us vaccinated and lots of us felt sick. I did not have any long term ramifications as far as I know.
I had Td about 5 years ago. I had no reaction at all.
