What Should I Do Before and After My Child Takes the Pneumococcal Vaccine?

Q: I’m going to take my 11-year-old daughter to have the shot of pneumococcal vaccine. Is there anything that I must know for my daughter’s sake?

A: You should pay attention to the physical condition of your child before taking her to the doctor’s. If she doesn’t feel well, especially when she has a cold or a fever, you must inform the doctor to put off the time of taking the shot.

After the injection, the place where she took the shot may turn red and swollen. She could feel pain. Other symptoms, such as occasional vomiting and fever, may occur on her. But these symptoms will be gone within a few days. You don’t need to worry too much. If the above symptoms continue for a few days, you should ask a doctor for help.
