    Comment from: Grandma Nurse, 55-64 on Treatment for less than 1 month Published: June 10

    My 24 mos grandson received Prevnar as advised by MD. Within 48 hrs he awoke with 103.8 fever, unable to sleep at night, won't eat,regressed speech and behavior, rubbing his head/face"ouchy". I am an RN,the change in his behavior was so abrupt that I had my daughter have him rechecked. He now is on antibiotics after a pending nasal culture and presumed "sinus" infection. I believe this was all caused by the Prevnar. 7 days later he is still not eating,losing weight, irritable and not sleeping. Being seen by MD 3 times since injection costing loss of work. We also have a 9 week old and was instructed not to let them in contact with each other until culture results are back.

    My daughter is still having reactions 10 days after being administered her 2nd dose of the vaccine. She has experienced vomiting, diarrhea, fever over 100 degrees, and general discontentment and fussiness up to the present. While some of these reactions can be expected with other vaccines, after reading more on the possible side effects of Prevnar and other data (google - prevar side effects!) I will absolutely not be giving my child any more doses.
