It is common for individuals who have just been vaccinated to develop mild symptoms like fever, due to the immune response of the body to the vaccine.

This is a natural response of the body, and it means that the vaccine is working.

In case the symptoms are bothering you, you can use antiinflammatory medications (Ibuprofen) or Tylenol to help with the symptoms.

If you still have doubts consult your doctor and seek a proper opinion.

I hope this helps.
