Abnormal Reactions Follwing Vaccination
Why does an abnormal reaction occur after vaccination?
Vaccination itself is safe, however, the immunity reaction of the human body vary in each person, not to mention those who have idiosyncrasy. That is why a rare case of abnormal reactions occur in the course of immunity protection. Therefore, a caregiver should closely examine a baby’s status after vaccination. If abnormal reactions occur, make sure to report to a nearby public health center or hospital/medical institute.
What should I do if an abnormal reaction occurs?
In this case, you should immediately call the medical professional at the medical institute where you received the vaccination or visit a nearby hospital/medical institute. Report the abnormal reaction to a public health center in your area or the medical institute where you received the vaccination by phone, or to the Homepage for Vaccination Tips (http://nip.cdc.go.kr).
