Thank you for your query,
Fever will come 4 to 10 days after MMR vaccination.
You can give Tylenol in prescribed dosage every 6th or 8 th hourly depending on the presence of fever.
If any associated cold , cough or any throat infection or the fever is still persisting consult your Pediatrician.
Give plenty of oral fluids.
Hope I have answered your query.
