Fever is like..: Fever is like an alarm. It is set off in your brain as a response of something that is "bothering" your body, something that your body is detecting is not right. Examples of triggers are infections, inflammations of joints and tissues, cancer, allergies. In summary, any potential insult that is out of the normal healthy state of your body can cause fever.

Would tetanus injection cause fever?

Yes.: For Adacel (the adult tetanus and whooping cough booster), fever incidence is 1-5%. Interestingly, there is some evidence that taking tylenol (acetaminophen) before a vaccine in hopes of preventing a fever can actually decrease the immune response to the vaccine - which isn't a good thing. So the fever could signify you're having a good immune response... But that's not conclusive.

Hyper tension?: Not sure what you mean by "tension". If you mean hypertension (high blood pressure) then yes, Fevers can cause spikes in blood pressure. This is because any illness causes inflammation and stress on the body which can affect heart rate, blood pressure, blood glucose and many other things.
