Prevention of fever caused by vaccination:
All children should be immunized according to the national immunization schedule. On the day of the vaccination, the parents send the child to the clinic. If the child has a fever or has any problem, report it to the health worker to decide whether the child can be vaccinated that day or make an appointment for another date.
– In many cases, after getting vaccinated for a number of diseases such as typhoid, tetanus, measles mumps … the child may have a low-grade fever, so fever-reducing medicine should be made available for the child to use when there are signs of fever after vaccination.
