My baby has a lump after her shots
After getting a vaccine, your child may have a small painless lump or a sore, red, swollen spot at the place where the injection was given. This lump may last up to 2 months. Warm compresses applied 3 times a day may be helpful.

Your child may also:
Have a slight fever
Have some decrease in activity
Have some decrease in appetite
Have some irritability
Limp for a couple of days (if the vaccine was given in the leg)

Remember, these reactions are normal and should only last
for a couple of days!
