When to Seek Medical Care
Seek medical care if you or your child has a rash, fever, seizure, severe headache, or stiff neck. Chest pain and shortness of breath should also prompt medical attention. Mild symptoms may be handled over the phone by a doctor's office. More severe symptoms should prompt a trip to the clinic or emergency room.
