Child had typhoid vaccination. Gave nurofen for burning throat. Has vomiting and fever. Are these side effects of the vaccine?

Hi My son had his typhoid vaccination today. We are due to go to Cuba on the 12th August. He went to bed with a burning throat , so I gave him nurofen. He has vomited and now has a high temperature . so ia have given him 10ml of Calpol . He finished oral antibiotics yesterday after having tonsilitis. My daughter also received the same vaccination but hasn t shown any side effects( not so far anyway). Is it the vaccination that has made him ill? I am concerned about his burning throat. Thank you

Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions, oral vaccine can leads to mild gastric discomfort like pain in abdomen, vomiting, diarrhea & occasionally mild fever. Again, the reactions are less common, mild and self-limiting, maybe you could continue the antibiotic for additional few days to manage any bacterial throat infection. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks
