Reaction to mmr/ pcv jabs- normal?

Lily had her mmr and pcv jab on monday. The side of her leg where she had the pcv jab has come up in a big red lump now, is this normal? I'm probably just worrying about nothing but would love some reassurance!

Also what is the pcv jab for? In red book it just says Pneumococcal- bit confused!



  • hi. the lump sounds normal, all my 5 had this after their mmrs and booster pcv. it will go down in a few days. just keep an eye on it. the pcv is for pneumococcal meningitis.
    hope this helps.xx
  • Thank you hun, I'm just a worrier! It's going down a bit now thankfully.
