JE 1st dose

Emmett is 11 months and 2 weeks old now.
Berat dia sekarang dah 9kg.

Thursday - kami bawa dia ke klinik untuk jab JE 1st dose, and doctor dah siap bagi ubat fever.
Friday - dia mula develop mild fever.
Saturday - high fever.
Sunday - ada cirit sikit.
Monday - masa pagi cuma panas kat bahagian kepala je, badan dah sejuk seperti normal;
petang mula nampak red spot kat muka - kepala
Tuesday - malam tadi dia langsung tak dapat tidur dengan nyenyak, everytime dia nangis/marah muka jadi bertambah merah, kami bagi bawa dia ke klinik lagi, risau gak kalau ada apa-apa kan.. Doctor kata virus infection, nothing serious; then bagi ubat sapu untuk gatal, ubat tahan cirit, dan air garam.

Dulu Eugene ok je lepas JE vaccine, tapi dia ada demam 2 minggu sebelum dia jab.
Ni 1st time Emmett kena high fever lepas jab.
In another 2 weeks he will get the JE 2nd dose pulak, hopefully my boy will be strong enough by then.

Like any medicine, a vaccine could cause a serious reaction. But the risk of JE vaccine causing serious harm, or death, is extremely small.

Mild Problems

  • Redness or swelling where the shot was given (about 1 person in 5)
  • Fever, rash, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, chills, muscle aches (about 1 person in 10)

Moderate or Severe Problems

  • Serious allergic reactions (between 1 in 400 and 1 in 100,000). Such a reaction could occur up to 10 days after the vaccination. Stay where you will have access to medical care during this time, if possible.
  • Seizures or other serious nervous system problems (between 1 in 50,000 and 1 in a million).
