What You Need To Know Before and After Vaccinations

Vaccines are pharmaceutical products that carry many risks – some greater than others.

The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 encourages you to become informed about the risks and complications of diseases and vaccines.

It is important to speak with healthcare professionals about the risks of vaccines.

What Are The Risks Of Vaccines?

According to the CDC, vaccines are recommended for children, teenagers and adults.

However, some of the ingredients in the vaccines can cause adverse reactions or increase symptoms.

If an adverse reaction occurs after receiving any vaccine, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.

Hours, days or weeks after vaccination symptoms can occur such as:

  • Swelling, redness, heat or hardness at the site of the injection
  • Hives
  • Rash
  • Collapsing
  • High fever
  • Twitching of the body

Other symptoms may occur such as vision or hearing loss, restlessness, hyperactivity, or inability to concentrate along with many more.

What to do After Getting Vaccinated

Once the vaccine is administered reactions could take weeks to be seen.  So, it is important to keep records of the vaccines received and the site of the vaccine in case any adverse reactions occur.

Incase of reactions, keeping records of the manufacturer’s name and the vaccine lot number is also important.

Since 1986, it has been a law for doctors and those who administer vaccines to report any injuries that occur after the vaccine was given, however less than 10 percent of vaccine induced injuries are reported.

This is why it is important to keep your own records of injuries occurring after vaccination.
