1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

PCV or Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine is a vaccine given to prevent pneumococcal bacterial infections that can cause pneumonia, meningitis, and also sepsis in children. Giving this vaccine can indeed cause some mild side effects, including:

skin reaction at the injection site (being reddish, swollen, palpable pain) fever and chills decrease appetite headache weakness and fatigue quickly These symptoms will usually disappear within 1-3 days. Usually your pediatrician will prescribe a fever medicine when your child is vaccinated which you can give if the child has a fever. If your doctor does not give it, you can buy Paracetamol yourself and give it to your child according to the recommended dosage in the package. If after 3 days the fever does not go down, the fever is very high, or the child has a seizure the first time, take your child to the pediatrician.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
