she is having a very hard time with them. My 15 month old had to get her shots, so I took Shelby at the same time since she needed a few boosters before she starts preschool this fall. She woke up vomiting Sat am, had a fever, has slept alot and her arm is still red, swollen, and sore. This has really surprised me as she never had any problems when she was younger. Can anyone remember if there 4/5 yo had more trouble with these shots than with others. I just feel so bad for her.

Oooo, call the doctor. DS was a little crabby and had some muscle pain for a day or two after his shots (even made him limp through Tball) but not to this extreme. I'd be concerned she might be having an allergic reaction or an infection.

Of course it could also be entirely unrelated - DS currently has strep, which I didn't know went around even in the summer.

Hope you all feel better soon.

Poor baby! I don't remember Tre having probs with his, but everyone reacts differently. What did the doc say? HUGS!! Hope things are much better!
