Is red dots on tongue a symptom of viral infection?

My 4 yr old was just vaccinated for the flu 3 days ago. This morning I noticed his tongue has about 5 small red circles (not bumps) at the tip. Any idea if this is signaling a virus coming on? He is eating and has no fever, is a little more tired than usual but that's about it.
