Thanks for writing to health care magic.

There is no relationship between vaccination and that lymphnode. If the lymphnode becomes tender or increases in size then consult your doctor.

Normal saline drops can be used if that cold is associated with blocked nose.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
