Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,high grade fever with chills is common side effect with Prevnar 13.

As your chills are gone and you should hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

Also take OTC Tylenol.

You should apply cool compresses on your forehead and body for 5-10 minutes.

If your fever'll not reduce in next few hours then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.
