Q.

Fever one day after MMR?

Hi Doc,
My little one (22 months) got her MMR immunization yesterday. This afternoon she got a fever of around 38.5 C. I' m so worried since as far as I know you only get fever one week after the vacc? She doesn' t look sick otherwise.
Thanks!

This is quite normal after this immunisation. By now her temperature should have settled. Let me know if you are still concerned.
