Let me preface this by saying that I am NOT a pedi nurse but rather an ER nurse who now works in a mixed pedi/adult ER. OK.
Last night a mother brought her 6 month old son in because he was vomiting and was lethargic. He had received his scheduled vaccinations earlier in the day. He had a slight temp. (100.5 rectal) which I expected. He was quite difficult to rouse and mom reported inability to keep any feeding down. Capillary refill was excellent as well as strong pulses, rest of vital signs etc. After zofran, tylenol, and ibuprofen he was greatly improved.
Does anyone know which vaccine would cause this type of reaction and if it is "normal"
About all I know is that babies will run fevers and want to sleep a lot after getting vaccinated.
Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.
