Brief Answer:
Fever post vaccination is common

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome
I have gone through your query.
Post vaccination, fever is common, I don't think you should be worried. You can give paracetamol drops for fever. Fever will subside in one or two days.

Hope this helps. I'll be glad to address your further queries.

This provisional advice provided by me is based entirely on the input provided to me. I would suggest examination by the doctor.

I hope this suggestion might be of some help to you.
Take care.
