The most common side effects of this vaccine is lethargy, sleepiness, elevated body temperature and possibly pain at the injection site. A less common but severe side effect is an allergic reaction this can be somewhat mild with hives and swelling or progress to a more severe state of anaphylaxsis. The more severe reaction usually occurs within the first hour of the vaccination.

It is normal for some level of lethargy and fever because this vaccine stimulates the immune system to respond so that would be normal. However the more severe reactions like hives, facial swelling, and vomiting must be treated immediately should they occur.

Please let me know if further assistance is needed.
