Brief Answer:
Acute pharyngitis

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the information.
Please tell me when did you get the vaccine as neck stiffness and fever can be because of this only.
You have been taking antibiotics already. You should continue with that. Along with this use hexidine gargles and take tablet vitamin c once daily.
Take paracetamol for fever.
You are always welcome with any further questions.
Wish you get well soon.
Thanks and regards
