Fever is more common following certain vaccinations, viz. DPT, and less common following others. Developing fever after all vaccinations is neither a certainity, nor an indicator of proper vaccination. Your doctor prescribed the medicines so that you may be able to give relief to the child JUST IN CASE HE DEVELOPS FEVER following the vaccination. So just be reassured that there is nothing to worry about and no action to be taken if the child does not develop fever. Get rid of this anxiety and enjoy the joys of parenthood!
