Worried: H1N1 Vaccine Side Effects

Hi all,

Our LO got the first H1N1 shot yesterday (the second is in a month). He also got his second seasonal flu vaccine at the same time (pedi said it was okay).

He has the most prolonged vaccine-related f ever he's ever had; it's over 24 hours now. It was 103.5; with Tylenol it's been around 101.5 He is sleepy and not eating well; he also has a runny nose that he had before the shot and it's compounding everything.

So I guess I'm just looking for reassurance that this moderate fever is normal since he's not been this way with any of his other shots. If you or your LO have had the H1 N1 vaccine, did you have a sustained fever? TIA.
