After Vaccination Information
The most common side effects of any vaccination can
be soreness, redness, or swelling where the vaccine
was given. These are mild and usually last for 1‐2
days. On occasion, some vaccines can cause fever,
achiness, fatigue and headache.
Apply a cool
washcloth or ice pack to the site for local tenderness
and take Ibuprofen (Advil) or Acetaminophen
(Tylenol) for discomfort and tenderness if needed.
We ask you to stay in the clinic for 15 minutes after
receiving your vaccine(s) in case you feel dizzy or
experience an extremely rare allergic reaction called
anaphylaxis. This may cause hives, swelling of the
throat, lips or tongue, or difficulty breathing. There
is treatment for this reaction.
Call 9‐1‐1 if this occurs after you leave our clinic.
Please report unexpected or serious reactions to
your health care provider or our TravelSafe Clinic.
