Hello Anik, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
When a child has a fever it is generally not recommended for immunization, because the immunization will include viruses or bacteria that are turned off or weakened to initiate the natural immunity of the child's body. And some vaccines that are inserted sometimes cause an increase in body temperature and discomfort in children. Therefore, if a child has a fever and is still being immunized, it is feared that the fever will get higher and worsen the condition of the illness.
However, if the fever is still mild, usually does not make an obstacle to immunization, here are some conditions that can still be immunized children are:
fever <38.5 degrees Celsius cough, mild colds mild diarrhea mild ear infections For this reason it should be ascertained before the fever occurs because of what factors and causes, whether caused by viral, bacterial, parasitic or autoimmune infections, and can be caused by dehydration factors because of diarrhea or vomiting which is quite severe. So we recommend bringing your child to consult with your doctor or pediatrician first, so that the cause is known. So that we can explain, hopefully useful and answer your questions.
