Not the vaccine: HPV vaccine doesn't cause fever. "Feeling feverish" may or may not be a fever anyway -- take your temperature to know. Symptoms like this can be psychological, e.g. if you are experiencing anxiety about the vaccine or HPV risks. But almost certainly these feelings are otherwise unrleated to the vaccine. You should still have the additional dose(s) as recommended by your doctor.
