any advice greatfully recieved!

ds (3) seems to have developed tonsillitis today after having his vaccinations on thursday. I think its tonsillitis as it looks like the tonsil area is red, swollen and spongy looking. He has a temp of 38.2 as of 3.45pm and has just had some neurofen. I'm waiting for a return GP call as they have no appointments left today.

is this a common response to the vaccines? the dr who is phoning back is always a wait and see type....ds1 had a lump under his chin when he was three and we waited to see what happened and he ended up having his lymph glands removed!

I think this is coincidence not reaction to the vaccine. There are a lot of viral bugs around at this time of year.
