No vaccine is totally free of risk, but the benefit of immunization vastly outweighs the risk for
almost every child. However, a baby shouldn’t be immunized during a feverish illness; postpone it until she is completely recovered. Also, talk to your doctor or pediatrician before the immunization if your child has had a serious reaction to a previous injection; has a severe egg allergy; has had a seizure or convulsion; is having treatment for cancer; or has any disease that affects her immune system. Vaccines often have side effects, such as fever and crying or irritability in the first 24–48 hours after the injection. There may also be redness or soreness at the injection site and a lump that can last several weeks. Some vaccines have other effects; for instance, MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) can produce a raised temperature or even a mild rash 10 days later.
