    6 days is quite a long time, I would be inclined to contribute the fever to something else other than the vaccine. Is there any other sign of illness? Cough, runny nose? How high is the fever? If it lasts another 12hrs I would get checked by a GP, if pansdol doesn't control the fever below 39 I would go to the hospital. Best of luck and healthy vibes.

    MMR is a live vaccine therefore it is usual for any side-effects to not appear until 5-12days after vaccination. Fever occurs in 5-15% of recipients, and rash in about 5%. Kids csn be irritable as well. Paracetamol can be given if required and symptoms are generally gone in about 2-3 days. If there are respiratory symptoms (snotty nose, sore throat etc) its not related to the vaccine. If you have a look at the paper given to you by the nurse/dr it should give you info about usual side effects and when they may occur .
    Hope that helps

    My son had a fever about 9 days after the MMR lasted 2/3 days I think. When I read the leaflet it did say that fever may not start until 5-10 days after the vaccine and its normal. He had no other symptoms so I was 99.9% sure it was the vaccine. It didn't seem to bother him too much.

    This is off the vic health page:

    Possible side-effects of MMR

    Reactions to MMR vaccine are much less frequent than the complications of the diseases.

    Common side effects

    Seen seven to 10 days after vaccination

    high fever over 39 oC
    faint red rash (not infectious)
