Does anyone have any links or information on this type of thing? It's not listed in the handouts given to me about vaccinations:
My 2 oldest daughters never had any issues with vaccines, and I am wondering if within the past 2 years an ingredient has changed in them, perhaps whatever they now use instead of thimerosal or something else? The reason I ask is that my son (16 months) after his vaccinations last August and again about 2 weeks ago had a reaction to them. He received completely different vaccines both times, and this most recent time I requested fewer vaccines so he only got his flu shot and MMR. So regardless of receiving different vaccines on these 2 occasions, both times he developed a body rash (red, flat) after a period of about 4-5 days of 102 temp. He was also very, very, very, very fussy- at times would cry inconsolably which he never does normally. This current time I went to Urgent Care and they said it was a vaccine reaction and prescribed Benadryl and a steroid and also antibiotics (ear infection, too).
I do not want to vaccinate him again- maybe try with 1 shot (flu maybe) in 2 years or 3, but am wondering if this is something kids outgrow or what the deal is?
