458072 tn?1291415186 federal health authorities recommended … that doctors suspend using Rotarix, one of two vaccines licensed in the U.S. against rotavirus, saying the vaccine is contaminated with material from a pig virus,” CNN reports. The Rotarix vaccine, which is made by GlaxoSmithKline and was approved by the FDA in 2008, has already been given to about 1 million U.S. children along with 30 million worldwide. The vaccine was found to contain DNA from porcine circovirus 1.
Avatar n tn My 3 month old son has been having 9-10 green mucousy stools per day since he received his 2nd dose of the Rotavirus vaccine, Rotateq. It has been 10 days with no improvement. He is in a lot of pain before and during a bowel movement. Other than that, he seems perfectly fine. Is this a common side effect of the vaccine? How long will this last? What can I do to help him get better?
Avatar m tn At 2 months she was to get dtap and rotavirus. The dtap vaccine that was requested was daptacel and I asked to double check. A couple days later it was realized that the pediarix combo vaccine (dtap, polio, and hep b) was given instead. I don't want to keep giving the combo and would rather give the daptacel. Do I continue on with dtap schedule using different brand or do I need to start over?
Avatar m tn Unfortunately, I read that rotarix first dose should be administered between 6 and 14 weeks. I also read that the first dose of rotavirus vaccines should not be administered later than 15 weeks. My question now is, should i continue he vaccine on September 4 or should i just skip the vaccine altogether since my son is already more than 15 week old? thank you.
8101930 tn?1420001456 My son is 2 months and just received his first shots yesterday including the rotavirus vaccine. I noticed that after his shots and today he has been pooping yellow colored like normal but it is very chunky. He is exclusively breast fed and always has a little bit of a seedy stool but this is very chunky. I'm Just curious if anyone knows if this is normal or not. Could it be from the rotavirus vaccine because they do ingest it. Thanks.
223520 tn?1221440283 So that was the first thing that got me upset. Then the nurse comes in and gets ready to give my son the rotavirus vaccine. I was like he has never had it. She proceeds to give it to him!! I was like um, can you ask the dr. about it? She was like fine. So he comes in and was like Im soo sorry!! I was like OMG! WHAT?! He was like we should have never given him the rotavirus vaccine, since he has never had it. He was like I assumed he had it before. I am freaking out!!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn chicken pox) are being mixed into the MMR vaccine. I did not know what the rotavirus vaccine was for, and with many vaccines (i.e. the flu shot) I disagree with them because I believe the body needs to be able to build up those antibodies on its own. So, I want to keep a better eye on what he is getting and if one or two had been sneaked in, the opportunity to stop it.
Avatar f tn My 12 month old had his MMR vaccine 12 days ago about two days after the vaccine he started getting sick. (he had been getting over a cold when he got the vaccine but Dr said it was fine) Day by day it has progressed into a quite a sickness- terrible runny nose, congestion, cough, very very irritable, not sleeping and within last day vomiting and diarrhea. He also has been falling over a lot when walking – maybe a ear thing? Dr says it’s a coincidence but I cant help but think otherwise.
Avatar f tn I have heard that there will be more problems and side effects from the swine flu vaccine thatn the regular flu vaccine. Does anyone know what they are? Will the vaccine be live or not. I am considering not taking it so as to prevent any other problelms, like Guillian Barre which occurred with the other vaccine.
Avatar n tn Thank you so much for taking the time to respond, it is greatly appreciated. My last vaccine was over a week ago, and I have seen some fluctuation of the side effects since this post as well. They are fairly steady and constant, but I have noticed a decrease on occasion so am hopeful they may all pass soon. I’ve also began utilizing OTC pain meds daily which do help tremendously the constant headache.
Avatar f tn Same here... just so curious .
Avatar n tn Pain, redness, swelling, a hard lump, bruising or itching around the injection site are the common side effects of this vaccine. Since this swelling has persisted for more than 5 days now it definitely needs treatment. It can possibly be a side effect of the vaccine.Antiinflammatory drugs may be needed to reduce the swelling. Only external examination can confirm whether there is any infective focus which may need antibiotics. It is best to discuss your concerns with your doctor.

Avatar n tn Mild problems: • soreness, redness, tenderness, or swelling where the shot was given • fainting (mainly adolescents) • headache, muscle aches • fever • nausea If these problems occur, they usually begin soon after the shot and last 1-2 days. Severe problems: • Life-threatening allergic reactions to vaccines are very rare. If they do occur, it is usually within a few minutes to a few hours after the shot. If the reaction is severe: What should I look for?
Avatar f tn Thank you for giving me a response any response is welcome. And sorry for my English I am not a native speaker. Last Month I ve started anti rabies vaccine (5 shots). And after two days from the second shot I felt a burning sensation in my throat. The next day I felt a swollen lymph node in my neck (right side).I went to the doctor and he said that's normal reaction to the vaccine.
Avatar m tn Hi, Though the most common side effects of H1N1 vaccine could be muscle aches, fever, runny nose, wheezing and headache, possibility of any serious diseases like Guillain-Barré syndrome that causes muscle weakness and paralysis is quite rare. Earlier some cases of GBS have been reported with vaccine but they were in very rare instances.
Avatar n tn Are there any side-effects associated with use of bcg vaccine as a treatment for bladder cancer? What is the current thinking regarding possible length of treatment with bcg? Thank you.
889551 tn?1416184483 Thanks! They only gave us those papers the one time and I lost them when we moved (Seems like I lost a lot of things. lol). Anyways at birth she weighed 7lbs and she was having issues getting up to her ideal weight due to her severe reflux and milk intollerance. We FINALLY got that cleared up and at her appt I thought the nurse said she weighed 13lbs 2oz, but the dr said 13lbs 6oz. It's just a 4oz difference so I'm not too concernced with it.
