      Please take her to the doctor. (Do not give tylenol.)
      It's very important that anyone suffering a vaccine reaction report it to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Currently only ~1% of those with such injuries report them, and until more people suffering such reactions do so, policies and vaccines will not be changed or made safer.

      Hope your daughter is better soon. This should really be seen by a doctor, and make sure the doctor reports it as well.
