He was fine so far. But starting today morning, he is having slightly high temperature.
Thermometer is showing 99.5F
We can watch him
It does not seem to be related to the vaccine
Does he have any other symptoms?
He is not showing any interest in eating as well.
no other symptoms noticed
Any runny nose?
Any skin rash?
His mother has been feeding from morning.
In the place where vaccination was given, there is small red bump
It can be due to the lump
It should clear on its own
No need to worry unless you see something unusual
It is ok to have lump at injection site
My pediatrican suggested long back about this. But checking with you if it is advisable to give this now
