Steroid shots infections

There has been no prior regular surveillance for adverse events following epidural steroid injections; however, infection is a known, although likely rare, risk that has been documented in the medical literature.   Although CDC has received reports of illness in patients who have received the medications listed in the table above, including some patients who had evidence of meningeal inflammation, CDC and public health officials have no reports of laboratory-confirmed bacterial or fungal meningitis, spinal, or paraspinal infections caused by these products.  The available epidemiological and laboratory data do not, at this time, support evidence of an outbreak of infections linked to usage of non-methylprednisolone NECC products.

Kids with bad allergies should carry an injectable shot of epinephrine to prevent life-threatening allergy attacks. If your child is at risk, the doctor will teach you and your child how to safely give an injection in the event of a severe allergic reaction.
