Complications after vaccination
Complications after vaccination against tetanus during pregnancy are usually complications caused by multicomponent inoculations.
Among the common systemic manifestations is an acute allergy (can go to anaphylaxis or laryngospasm), high temperature, general weakness.
Among the delayed symptoms: a rash on the skin, similar to hives, causing general or local itching or edema, and in addition dermatitis. Due to a decrease in immunity at the site of vaccination, phlegmon or abscess may develop (externally the wound looks completely healed), toxic epidermal necrolysis or regional lymphadenitis may develop - axillary lymph nodes become inflamed, sepsis occurs. Also, post-vaccinal type arthritis, in which there are swelling and severe pain, and besides this, serum sickness. An asthma attack after some time after the vaccine or the appearance of asthma after 2-4 weeks. After the procedure; may occur and hyperventilation of the lungs.
Lethal outcome is a rare exception - there are 4 such cases per 10 million vaccines.
Disturbances in the work of the nervous system: inflammation of nerves or roots (polyneuritis or radiculitis), short-term paralysis or paresis (mostly one-sided form, in which there is complete or partial loss of speech), usually from the side where the vaccine was made. In addition, in the extremities, spasmic contractions of the peripheral muscles can occur, in which the pain experienced varies in duration and strength. Possible the development of transverse myelitis in acute form and encephalomyelitis, in which the head is very sore.
Cardiovascular system: increased heart rate - arrhythmia or tachycardia, as well as an attack of angina (the most severe reaction is myocardial infarction).
Organs of the digestive system: increased salivation, vomiting with nausea, diarrhea, bloating with the appearance of spasmodic pain.
