Yes, I would think something in the body is reaction. Violently. Trying to rid itself of whatever invaded it. Trying to get back to a balanced self.

NO. It does not mean that at all.
It means the immune system is under attack.
Does it create antibodies? Maybe? Maybe to the half dead virus in case the child ever comes in contact with them again.
There is a good chance of that when the child gets the booster shots.
But it can not create antibodies to the natural pathogen.
Look how they say the flu virus mutates from year to year. And they know the flu shot does not protect in the next season. Yet a vaccine with a mangled existence it is supposed to protect against a natural germ?
(I personally doubt that there is any such thing as a virus that it makes us sick.)
