Have you or a family member suffered a Vaccine Reaction?

Most people who receive vaccines suffer no serious reaction. However, a very small percentage of vaccine recipients can suffer an adverse reaction and other injuries. In those rare cases, the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program provides compensation to people found to be injured by certain vaccines.

What signs of a moderate or severe adverse vaccine reaction should I look for?

After you or your child are vaccinated, look for any unusual conditions, such as a serious allergic reaction, high fever or behavior changes. Signs of a serious allergic reaction include difficulty breathing, hoarseness or wheezing, hives, paleness, weakness, a fast heart beat or dizziness, and swelling of the throat. Parents should look for is prolonged soreness (lasting more than 2 to 4 hours) around the site where the vaccine was given. Redness or bruising around the vaccine site in combination with fever can also be an early sign of a vaccine injury.
