According to some mantra, vaccine side effects never happen. But somehow, a new study is showing that they do happen, but the light at the end of the tunnel is that they won’t happen again. In other words, if your child has an adverse reaction to a vaccine, you can give the same vaccine to the kid again and not worry about thing.
According to WebMD
MONDAY, Aug. 28, 2017 (HealthDay News) — When a child has a serious reaction to a vaccine, the chances of it happening again are slim, a new analysis suggests.
The review, of 29 studies, found that severe vaccine reactions recurred rarely, if ever, when a child received the same vaccine again, or one with similar ingredients. Those reactions included seizures and a potentially dangerous allergic response called anaphylaxis.
Unless it is a fever, because those seemed to come back, according the same article. The CDC says that most of these side effects are considered minor. But when it comes to allergic reactions and seizures, Dr. Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, doesn’t want you to fear giving the vaccine again.
“This is one of the most common questions I get,” he said.
He is calling it “welcome information.”
What do you think? Would you give your child the same vaccine again that caused a seizure the first time?
