Hello from JustAnswer.

How high is the fever?

Does the cough produce any yellow or green sputum?

Is she having any shortness of breath? Does the breathing limit any activities?

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 11 months ago.

I had asked for some additional information and have not heard back.

The most common cause of fever, shivering, and a cough is a generic viral infection. However, it is also possible that these symptoms could be due to a more serious infection, such as pneumonia. The answers to the requested information would guide the level of concern that a pneumonia is present and whether it would be appropriate for her to be see emergently.

If you can provide the additional information, then I would be glad to comment further.
