Vaccination & Immunization Message Board

Vaccination & Immunization Board Index

I have a baby too and when I took her in for her 2 month shots she had a horrible reaction. She cried uncontrollably for 5 hours. I thought she was going to have a heart attack she was so worked up. I called the dr. twice during the episode and they just said giver her motrin and deal with it. The next day she was fine, but at 4 months (the other day) I took her in for another dose of shots and was really concerned about her reaction. I have two other kids who had no problems with their shots. My doctor said he would be right back he had to look at something. He said that he did not want to giver her the P (pertusis) in the DTP just the DT. We talked about the chances of getting this illness which can be deadly. I was concerned since there was an outbreak about a year ago in a town about 30 miles from me. We decided it would be better to not give the vaccine. So from now on she doesn't get it and he will sign it off come school. If for some reason there ever is an outbreak hopefully we realize it right away and vaccinate her I guess. Kindof nerve racking. Apparantly this particular shot seems to cause bad reactions in many children. Scary!! By the way..after her 4 month shots without the Pertusis she was fine. No reactions at all.
