Is it normal to run a fever after shots?

I just wanna get some reassurance. My baby is four months old. 9.12 ozs and got shots today. She’s running a fever of 102. I gave her 1 ml of Tylenol. I really just wanna double-check.

Completely normal. If it hits 103+ I’d call the pediatrician or take her into the ER just to be safe. But it’s absolutely normal. Should break within a few hours.

It is 100% normal for a fever, but not that high. Please get the little one seen and do not listen to any of the anti vax nutcases because they want unhealthy children.

The doctor should of given you a paper. But yes it’s normal. Just monitor her. If it gets to high, take her in. Like warm bath helps. Motrin and Tylenol. Alternate back and forth. Unless that’s changed

Yes and I think you’re undernedicating. Call your child’s pediatrician so that they can give you the correct dosage

Yes, it’s normal. In the future be sure to give your baby Tylenol or Motrin about 30 minutes prior to going for shots. It will stay in front of the fever, so it won’t be as high. It’s normal, it will subside soon.

Yes it happens just keep a cool wash cloth close and dab the wrists or the neck.

Rise in temp yes. Fever not really. 102 is high. If Tylenol doesn’t lower that then call the dr.

Yes it’s typical. I give mine Tylenol about an hr before the shots every single time!

Yes it’s normal. Next time give her Tylenol about 30min to an hour before she gets shots.

I had my doctor only do one per visit. Just ridiculous to give three to four shots at a time.

Nice cool bath but throw some ice cubes in there. Fun to play with and it’s not a big as a cold bath.

It’s normal my pediatrician would tell me the Tylenol dose appropriate for my child’s age at the time, this can help with fevers and pain. Reach out to them!

Yes. Put her in a like warm tub and dress her/him in just a diaper to bring down their temperature

It can be normal but check with a doctor. Babies can have adverse reactions, especially at that young age.

Any reaction, even a fever, is not normal.
