Hi, mamas and dads--I'm a selective/delayed vax-er and my 4 yo dd go DTap and Polio shots about 10 days ago. This was her third dose of both shots (the last was 11 months ago), and she's had both together before without any reaction. This time, however, she developed a fever of about 102 about 9 hours after receiving the shots. The fever responded to Ibuprofen. And she was back to "normal" within 24 hours. Yesterday (9 days after the shots) she developed a persistent fever again and has little energy. Could this be a reaction? Is there anything I can do? Thanks.
