    Vaccine reactions? Convulsions? Neurological disorders? 
    Allergies (asthma, antibiotics)? Immune system problems?
  • Do I have full information on the vaccine's side effects?
  • Do I know how to identify a vaccine reaction?
  • Do I know how and why my doctor should report a vaccine reaction?
  • Do I know the vaccine's name and batch number?
