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.
