Don't allow your cat to be vaccinated if s/he has a reaction to it. Pay attention to your instincts. It could kill her.
Be VERY careful about vaccinations in cats. A side effect shows it's destructive to her. Sometimes they'll need IV support until they get over it and sometimes those symptoms won't show up for months.
Years ago, I had a cat who had that reaction, and I called the drug company that made the vaccination and talked to one of the scientists who said "if my cat reacted like that, I'd never give him another one."
Later, I had another cat who also had a reaction. Then, several months later, he ended in the ER for a week. Several years (and several vaccinations because Vaccines were lifesavers in my belief system back then) later, he developed CANCER (fibrosarcoma, or VAS, Vaccine associated sarcoma) from which he subsequently died.
Medications and vaccinations are supposed to help not harm our kitties. She's not likely to get giardia. Skip it. For EVER
