Question post immunization swelling

Our daughter (2years) recieved 5 shots (DTaP-4, Hepa-2, MMR-2, vanialla-2, pcv7-4) two days ago. One of her legs has continued to swell. The swelling is midly warm and has a two tone red color to the swelling it is also slightly below the injection site. There are no red lines in the swelling and she has not been running a fever. Is this swelling something she may need to see a doctor about or is is normal? We would hate to take her to the doctor for no reason.

Re: post immunization swelling

This is a common reaction to vaccines. Having 5 vaccines in one day is too much for a child's body to handle. Maybe consider splitting them up from now on.
