Got fever after having vaccination for MMR, polio and flu. Should I be concerned?

Thank you! I took my son to the doctor 4 days ago to get his 5 year old wellness exam. He got the MMR , polio , and flu vaccination at the time. Since then he has been running a fever ..100-103 and has a runny nose. I am giving him Motrin, but the fever seems to keep coming back. Today he asked to go lay down in the bed to watch TV (this IS NOT normal for him. Should I be concerned?

Thanks for your query,
Fever with runny nose is usually viral in originand it takes 2 to 3 days to settle down.I advise you to give paracetamol every 4 to 6 hours till fever comes below 100F,do tepid sponging.give plenty of fluids,coconut water,fruit juices,
In case symptoms persist take him to pediatrician.
Your son will be fine
God bless
