welcome to healthcare magic. the yellow fever vaccine is a live viral vaccine, as such all live vaccines are not given during pregnancy. the present evidence for yellow fever vaccine is not much. the women who have received the vaccine during early pregnancy have not found to have any increased risk of congenital malformations. however there has been documented a small risk of minor skin malformations. so as per present evidence a woman who takes the vaccine should not get pregnant for 4 weeks. now you can decide, if u would like to continue with the pregnancy and take the risk . there are many chances that nothing will happen to the baby.

Hi, doctor My daughter had her 5 year old vaccination on the 10 of January , after a couple of weeks I noticed a red rash on her legs and then her arms and the stomach, basically it spread all over her body except her face. I then took her to a pharmacist and he gave me a liquid form cortazan, medicine name is pre lone , it then started going away and as soon as she was running around and jumping up and down the jungle gyms did the rash come back really aggresively and now on her face it was very red, we then took her to a doctor and he told me she has a allergic reaction to something, but she has never had this before, I never changed her diet or the washing powder, it has been ever since the vaccination. The rash then started going away since giving her the medicine. But 3days now the rash has come back, it goes away and comes back and sometimes worse then the other times, but not as red, but itchy. Please help

My 11 month old daughter, who has had a flu shot, was playing at a friends house Sunday. Today my friend took her child to the dr with a fever and a nasal swab said she had the flu. Can my daughter get the flu? If so, how long does it take for the symptoms and what should I watch for or what should I do? Also, can my daughter be contagious now? Do I need to keep her from other children?
