Yikes. Guess someone forgot to inform my daughter that reactions are so rare that she shouldn't have had them.  And I did report them - to the pediatrician, and to VAERS myself because I don't trust a doctor to go and report something that they don't believe exists.  As a longer term reaction, my daughter developed a nasty sensitivity/borderline allergy to oats, following her last vaccines.  Covered head to toe in hives, eyes swollen, body red hot, I was told she couldn't possibly be having a food reaction - it  was labled a "non-specific viral illness".  No one's been knocking down my door to study my child.
