Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
Mild fever, aches are common after a flu shot.
If your fever is not high then it can be a factor.
However, if the rise of temperature is higher then there can be other causes.
A viral or bacterial infection is common.
An examination by doctor would be needed then.
You can take Tylenol for fever.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
