hi. being a mother it's too difficult to see our baby crying and. when we get the option of giving painless vaccination we happily go for it. when my son given dis vaccine even my condition was same I opted for painless but then our pediatrician(Dr parimala from aster CMI hospital,bangalore) suggested to give atleast one (normal vaccine) I. e. ,, painful. and she gave a gud explanation to us. she told dat if we go for painless that vaccine will not have long term benefit. after 25-26 yrs of age child may catch infection. whearas painful vaccine will save the child till 60yrs of age.

I think so, painless vaccine is banned for now. Only painful vaccine is available in the market, if anybody has painless, please check all the details.

Hi Ashwini, It's very difficult to see the suffering of the child,if we go for the painful vaccination. But the painful one have better result. My daughter's pedi told that even painless vaccination is available in the hospital he will only suggest painful vaccination. Ashwini, when u go for the vaccination, along with the vaccination medicine doctor will prescribe pediatric paracetamol drops. Only for 48 hrs dey will have the fever and pain. After that dey will be ok.

Hi Ashwini the painless vaccination is the baby will not have the fever and swelling. The painful vaccination will have the fever and swelling in the legs. but it's better to go for the painful vaccination which improves ur baby immunity system. The pain and the fever is for the First two vaccination only after that your baby will be ok for the painful vaccination.

hi. my doctor had suggested to give painful only as the effect of painless once remain for shorter period of time as it is give only on external tissues. but it is completely your choice whether to give painless or painful. If you plan to give painful don't worry too much paracetamol works wonders in such situations. good luck

Hi Ashwini.. I am mother of 4 month old baby. i have also researched a lot about painless and painful vaccination. I came to know that the concept of painless vaccination actually came from foreign countries. But gradually painless vac is getting banned there because it was found to be less fruitful. so I chose painless vaccination for my baby. thanks and happy parenting

I have searched and read before on this difference and find out that painful vaccination is better than painless vaccines. I have given my daughter painful vaccination always and doctor also have never suggested for the painless medicine.

Once painless is given it should be continued with painless for rest of the vaccination. Don't worry the painless vaccination has the same results of painful vaccination without the pain of fever and swelling. I have given my daughter the painless vaccination all the time.

I have asked the same question before, and came to know from expert that painful vaccination that is DTwP is better as it has more potency and immunity compared to painless vaccine DTaP. You can also find the same by Googling DTwP vs DTaP

We develop antibodies to the cell surface components of bacteria and viruses. The whole purpose of vaccination is to induce resistance to certain infectious agents as would occur after naturally contacted infection. The painful vaccine injection is the whole cell wall which also contains additional unidentified proteins against which we develop antibodies too as in natural infection hence more potent than the painless vaccine. The painless vaccine or the acellular variety is extracted components of certain identified surface proteins. The painful vaccine is more potent and induces pain and fever for 2-3 days during the 1st injection because the body's immune system is on full throttle. The subsequent injections cause a less pronounced response because it's more of a backup effort. For long term effect, whole cell vaccines are better. esp with DPT

Hi deepali, in painful vaccination your baby will get fever for 1 or 2 days. Doctor will give you medicine for that.

Same happened with me for the first time. Doctor gave the baby painless vaccination. Second time I went to a different doctor,who is very experienced and famous .He showed me current vaccination chart and vaccination chart for last 2 -3 years .He said painless option has been removed now as it was not much effective as compared to the painful .The painless vaccination is effective for only 10-11 years, so I went for painful vaccination option.
