Parents are concerned over kids' reactions to vaccines

 SOUTH BEND, Ind. --- Many parents are reporting that their children are having reactions to vaccines.

Pediatricians say that when some kids enter kindergarten or sixth grade and they are required to have vaccinations, they expect a few calls from parents saying that their children have suffered some side effects.

"Up to one in six can get a fever after getting the vaccine. One in twenty can get a rash and one in seventy-five can get some mild swelling of their cheeks, but most of these symptoms will be short lived and in a week or two, they're gone," said Dr. Charisse Johnson, a  local pediatrician.

Many doctors offices have gone paperless so it is recommended that parents go to the CDC's website for a complete list of vaccine reactions.
