Although the vaccine information sheets listed below have all possible vaccine reactions, the normal response to childhood vaccines is mild. Most children no longer require pre-medication with Tylenol or Motrin prior to vaccination as fever is no longer routinely seen. In fact, routine premedication is not recommended as this may dampen the immune response. We recommend Tylenol and ibuprofen only if symptoms warrant treatment. The normal reaction after vaccinations is often no obvious reaction. If a reaction is seen it tends to be temporary a mild. Your doctor will want to know if you should experience any reaction that is more intense or unusual with a phone call or office visit.
