2 month old got shots yesterday fever today white blood cell count 30 why?

Dr. Janesta Noland
Specializes in Pediatrics
Possible infection: The elevated white blood cell count is unlikely to be caused by the vaccines. Most likely, she was about to get sick and the timing of the vaccines was coincidence. Vaccines can cause fever, but do not cause fever higher than 102 or so. If fever was higher and white cells are elevated, the baby probably has an infection of some sort.
