Thank you for your query,
I think your child has been given Hepatitis A first dose vaccination.
But fever after this vaccination is unusual for thress days.
As the child is having running nose also it could be due to a viral fever.
Continue Tylenol for fever as prescribed.
If there is high grade fever do tepid sponging with lukewarm water.
Consult your Pediatrician for examination and specific treatment for cold and the infection.
Hope I have answered your query.

Thanks for your query.

After vaccination there are mild symptoms like fever,runny nose which settles in 2 to 3 days.This could be a part of viral illness as well.

Continue with tylenol if fever is above 100F.
In case of high fever do tepid sponging.

Give plenty of fluids,vegetable soup.fruit juices,.

In case symptoms persist,get her evaluated by pediatrician.

Wishing your baby good health.

God bless.

Thank you for your query.

You have not mentioned which vaccination was given. To the best of my knowledge there is no vaccine which is given at 12 month which causes fever unless your daughter was late in receiving her triple shots.

The fever and running nose could be because of viral infection which shall take its own course. You may add some decongestant syrup.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
