Most times, vaccines function properly by enhancing the immune system’s ability to fight off disease. There are mild side effects with the majority of vaccines; often presenting flu-like symptoms, including fever, nausea, and body aches. However, there are occasions when vaccines do more harm than good, and patients can have an adverse reaction to the vaccine.
