Detail Follows.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend
Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
See, viral fever due to sore throat these days remains for up to 7 days. So it is most likely that the fever is due to viral only.
Following are answers of your query:
1. Yes typhoid vaccine can also cause fever. That is the reason why most doctors don't prefer to administer any vaccine during period of illness.
2. You can give Meftal 250 mg thrice a day. However I would advise you to give Paracetamol 500 mg thrice a day instead of Meftal as it is safe
If you have any further query please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
