Hello kishore;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The painless vaccines available at present are OPV-oral polio vaccine and Typhoral -it is for typhoid otherwise all vaccines are in form of injectables so they do cause pain to your child but there is no choice at least at present.
Presently under Govt Aid programme in India there are limited vaccines available like :-
BCG-for TB
OPV-for polio
DPT-for diphteria;tetanus;and polio
All other vaccines like Hepatitis-B;Tripacel a vaccine similar to DPT (but with no fever which comes with DPT);MMR;Hepatitis-A;Chickenpox and many such vaccines are not available in Govt Aid so they are manufactured by private pharma companies and are marketed in retail market so they are expensive to the patients.Hope in coming years the Govt policies will improve more and you will get a better healthcare system till then we all have to bear with it.
I guess i have answered your query.
Thanks

My son had a flu vaccination on Jan. 20th and has had multiple symptoms since then. He has had eye twitching, shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, headaches, dizziness (disoriented feeling), ringing in the ears (only once), blurry vision, and muscle soreness. This is just over 4 weeks from the time of the vaccination and after a round of z-Pack, and zyrtec, and aleave, or Tylenol for the muscle soreness and headaches, he is improving, however, he still begins feeling sort of bad around 9:30pm and the disorientation comes back. Also, the eye twitching still comes and goes. We feel he is having side effects from the flu vaccination and were also wondering if Guillain Barre Syndrome might be a factor here. If so, we don t think it is a severe case. Wondering how long his symptoms might continue and is there anything we should be doing that might help other than the ibuprofen or aleave for muscle soreness?

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
