good evening, first of all i need to know which vaccine was given , usually at 1 yer of age hepatitis A vaccine is given which may not cause such a fever as u r describing. i m suspecting a urinary tract infection or just a high grade of viral fever. till ur doctor arrives , u can give her oral paracetamol syrups and warm water sponge baths now and then to reduce the temperature as soon as possible and prevent febrile seizures. if the child s lips continue to be blue in color, kindly take her to the ER .
