6 months old fever vaccine

my 6 months old just had his vaccination today. previous time he had a low grade fever but i didnt have a proper thermometer to measure.. this time around im monitoring him more frequently. his body is really warm, but his temperature is always between 36.8-37. but he feels really warm. infact the scanning thermometer showed 35-36 degrees. is this considered fever? should I be concerned about his body heating up?

hi. I actually feel the same way with my baby. After vaccination she tends to get 'warmer' than usual so I always check with the thermometer but result will be 37degrees. my hubby thinks I'm being paranoid 😅 coz even night time I check 2-3 times but still no fever. 😊guess we should try to relax more.

36 degree celcius is not fever.

yes but is it normal babies tend to be warmer after the vaccination?
