Cough and cold can take some time to subside. Ass it is more than one week since she fell I do not think there is any problem due to that. If she has no fever, wakes up immediately and answers questions correctly you need not worry. Reaction to vaccine is unlikely after so many days. If she complains of increasing headache or has persisting vomiting you need to show her again..
