Avatar f tn Need information about pnemonia & Rotavirus side effects. Are side effects common and be curable?
Avatar f tn I cant remember if my daughters pediatrician gave her the rotavirus vaccine before we left Michigan..She is now 2months old and when we went to get her 2 months shot done, they gave her the rotavirus vaccine orally, here in mexico..Will she be sick or anything?
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?
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.
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?
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 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.
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 Same here... just so curious .
Avatar f tn So I have my baby already but I am begging you all do research on vaccines before your baby arrives. I have my 8 week old girl and she just got her first set of shots and she's very sick after them she's been crying like never before her eyes are in so much pain her body gets so stiff. She has pooped at least 2 times every day since birth now she hasn't pooped since the vaccine it's been 4 days!!!!
Avatar n tn While hepatitis B cannot be transmitted if there is not exchange of fluids, you miss the point. The vaccine works., You received the vaccine. If exposed the vaccine nearly completely eliminates your risk of infection.
Avatar f tn Well, just a suggestion. Hepatitis A vaccine is readily available. Get the vaccine. And, yeah, have you got for Hepatitis B also? Hepatitis A has no chronic infection. Only acute. In fact, Hep A does not cause fatal problems. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Good INFO for the BRAIN
Avatar n tn (name of clinic and doctor) Does he also have the Rotavirus vaccine? What do you think about how the vaccines are preserved? (electricity outages, etc.) What is the cost? Also, what do you think about going to the public hospital for some of the vaccines? (Pentavalente: diptheria, pertussis, etc.) We are in Jarabacoa, thank you so much for your help!!
Avatar f tn Women who are trying to conceive should wait for four weeks after taking this vaccine. A pregnant woman should not take the MMR vaccine due to possible risks to the fetus. MMR vaccination of your husband should not affect your conceiving. For most adults, the benefits of the MMR vaccine outweigh the relatively rare risks. The side effects of this vaccine are very few and seen in very few people like fever,rash,swollen glands, mild stiffness in joints etc.
Avatar n tn It is recommended to wait until after pregnancy to get the Gardasil vaccine. It is best to avoid subsequent doses of the vaccine. Do inform your gynecologist about this vaccine. Hope you find this information useful. Take care and good luck!

Avatar m tn m starting work at a hospital in June and they require that a Tdap vaccine be taken. Is it ok to get a Tdap vaccine only 6 months after a tetanus vaccine?
Avatar m tn My baby boy received the first and only dose of rotarix last friday(20/02/2009). He is having reddish rashes over his face and from today morning he had slight fever of 99 degrees F. In India immunisation schedule does not include Rotavirus & Pneumococcal. But due to doctor's insistence we agreed to give him the doses, although lately. Doctor is asking to give him one more Pneumocoaccal after baby attains 12 months age. My query is what is the reason behind this allergic reaction?
Avatar n tn I had the Hep B vaccine(required for work) and about 2 years later I needed the rabies vaccine post exposure(hrig and rabies shot series) because I was trying to help a stray and exposed myself to a potentially rabid animal. So I was wondering if the rabies vaccine or hep B vaccine could cause trouble with my thyroid? I read a study about rabies vaccine and thyroid issues in dogs but couldn't find any articles on a human connection. My TSH 2004: TSH 4.43 (Range:0.5-5.0) 2006: TSH 4.
Avatar m tn 25m planning to get the hpv vaccines. I read that there are some nasty adverse effects, fainting, soreness, fever, etc. even death. Just how safe is this vaccine? It's giving me a bit of anxiety just from reading some of these articles.
1056870 tn?1254244774 can hiv vaccine be possible and what time it will take to evolve such vaccine, is vaccine available in any part of country
675718 tn?1530033033 I am 6 months pregnant and there has not been enough testing done on it for me to take any chances with a brand new vaccine. I totally understand the risks of getting the swine flu but I also will not put a vaccine in my body and my babies that has not been tested properly. That of course is just my opinion. I am concerned more about what side effects or problems it will cause a year or more down the road after getting the vaccine.
Avatar m tn As an adult, the only risks for HIV are: 1) having unprotected, penetrative vaginal or anal sex, or 2) sharing IV drug needles with other IV drug users. You had NO RISK for HIV and you do not need to test. You acknowledge that you have OCD, and that's where this is coming from. Medical professionals don't take careless risks like that. No one has ever gotten HIV from receiving a vaccine.
