DD has had men b vaccination today. Would anyone like to reassure me that she won't get a fever and it will be fine!!

Thank you smile

7 month old DD got hers at either 8 or 12 weeks (can't remember which) and she was fine.

Just keep an eye out for swelling or a red mark greater than the size of a 50p at the spot they injected.

I gave calpol soon as jabs were done. He wasn't himself for a few days, but all ok. Lots of cuddles x

Yes, forgot to say I gave Calpol after. Think the nurse advised to give it 4 times over a 24hr period afterwards. They should hopefully have told you this though.

Calpol is your friend. My friend's DS had a horrible reaction and we prepared for that (although he is now fine). We were advised to use Calpol even if he seemed fine and thankfully all was well. smile

My DS was unwell with a temp and general misery for a few days. Keep on top of the calpol and baby nurofen (if your DC is old enough for that). He had a worse reaction to the rotavirus vaccine tbh.
MMR on Friday, gah

Thanks, we gave calpol just before so hoping she'll be ok. Middle child has just been sick- didn't see that one coming! Could be a long night confused
