Contact doctor ASAP: One needs to establish what the cause of the fever is. You have not mentioned any other symptoms besides a single episode of vomiting? You should contact your doctor or speak to a doctor at your nearest ER, and depending on your discussion, the doctor might indicate that your child needs to be examined to establish the cause of the fever and to treat him ASAP.
