Vomiting after fall can indicate something very serious and therefore requires a thorough evaluation and if indicated a CT Scan to ensure nothing is wrong. In fact, this is one symptom for which you should take your child to the ER as soon as possible for a complete check up. If the vomiting is projectile in nature then it is even more serious. Do not waste time here!
