Vaccines and fever

My son had his 6 month needles yesterday afternoon (TBR and something else)...he`s had a fever since. How long is it relatively `normal`for them to be feverish...

Re: Vaccines and fever

My son is almost 7 months now, but he had a low-grade fever after his 2 month shots, and it lasted about two days. I'm not sure what the average is, but I would be more concerned with how high the temperature gets, as opposed to duration. If the fever was high, like 104 F for two days, I would definitely call the doctor. Otherwise, I'd just try to keep the temp down and keep him comfy. Hope your boy is feeling better soon.

Re: Vaccines and fever

Thanks, it's been about 102ish (and i've given him Tylenol)...he just seems really really sluggish so I wanted to make sure it was fairly normal.
p.s...I've got an Isaac too!!!

Re: Vaccines and fever

My DD had her 12 month shots and had a fever for almost three days. It was a pretty consistent 101, and she was clearly not feeling well, but it resolved on its own and then she was perfectly fine.
