    hi all, DS going for his jab tomorrow – he 18 months old. Anyone had it done? Any side effects on children? I had mine a few weeks ago and felt fine apart from a sore arm.


    Hi. We had ours about 2 weeks ago – myself and DS1 were completely exhausted with aches and pains for a few days afterwards. DS2 seemed fine but then got chest infection and vomitting a few days later – GP was of the opinion that there was no connection to jab – am inclined to agree but who knows.

    some people are no saying that they are not giving the 2nd dose to kids anymore, but i am not clear if this is because of side effects or financial constraints. maybe someone can clarify this please … ?

    on balance, i think i am happy we got the vaccine but it wasnt an easy decision, and i do have a few concerns at the back of my mind.

    hope this is helpful, and good luck tomorrow


    My dd got the vaccine a few weeks ago and she didn’t have any obvious side effects. I was careful not to touch the injection site afterwards though because the nurse did say it might be tender.


    I had mine 3 weeks ago and no side effect. My son had 2 doses of calvapen and had no side effects on either time.


    My 15 month old had his done a few weeks ago aswell with no problems – gave him some calpol when we got home incase of any pain but don’t think he had any and no problems since.
    He had the pandemrix vaccine & the doctor said he would not need the second dose as new findings coming in were saying that one dose was sufficient.
    I had the celvepan and did need the 2nd dose but she said that may change too as more information is gathered.
    Good luck with your decision 🙂


    i had both my boys (and myself) done about 3 weeks ago, they did get a viral infection the week after but not linked according to the gp.Other then the site of the injection being sore for a few days we were all fine
    Good luck


    well ds had his jab earlier, Haymarket Health Centre in Drogheda, chaos but organised chaos – I think! He was fine but quite loppy now – having a good nap so hopefully he will be right as rain. Thanks for replies.


    Had the Jab done on Thursday in Haymarket, me & my son. Both of us left with the vomiting bug! I was puking on Fri then he started on Sat. Had a great weekend!!!! 😥


    that is terrible waffy. i hate going to the clinics or the GPs as you always seem to end up sicker than when you went in.
    hope you’re both feeling better for the big day
