What Are the Risks Associated With the Hib Vaccine? TOP
Like any vaccine, the Hib vaccine can cause serious problems, such as a severe allergic reaction. Most people do not have any problems. Some people have redness, warmth, or swelling near the injection site, as well as a fever.
Acetaminophen is sometimes given to reduce pain and fever that may occur after getting a vaccine. In infants, the medication may weaken the vaccine. Discuss the risks and benefits of taking acetaminophen with the doctor.
