Kinrix Side Effects

Side Effects With Kinrix to Report

Some reactions to Kinrix (or to any childhood vaccine) are potentially serious -- even life-threatening -- and should be reported to your child's healthcare provider. These include but are not limited to:
  • A high fever
  • Any unusual behavioral changes (aside from the usual fussiness that typically occurs after vaccinations)
  • A seizure
  • Collapse
  • Persistent, inconsolable crying lasting for three hours or more
  • Weakness, tingling, or paralysis (which may be signs of Guillain-Barré syndrome)
  • Signs of an allergic reaction, such as:
    • An unexplained rash
    • Hives
    • Itching
    • Swelling of the mouth or throat
    • Wheezing
    • Difficulty breathing.

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if your child will have problems with a vaccine.
Therefore, make sure to let your child's healthcare provider know if your child develops any side effects after being vaccinated. Also, let your child's healthcare provider know if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a Kinrix side effect, your child's healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem -- or provide reassurance if nothing is wrong.
