Vaqta Side Effects

Side Effects to Report

Some side effects of Vaqta are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider. These include but are not limited to:
 
  • A high fever
  • Any unusual behavior changes (aside from the usual fussiness in children that typically occurs after vaccinations)
  • A seizure
  • Persistent, inconsolable crying in children that lasts for three or more hours
  • 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 Vaqta side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while receiving this vaccine or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
