If my baby ran a fever after the last hepatitis b shot, should she not get the next one?

No: She should still get the next hepatitis vaccine. It is common for some babies to have fever or fussiness or tiredness after a vaccine. This is not harmful. Discuss with your baby's doctor when you go in for the next vaccine.

Yes: Generally fever certainly is not fun, but does not fall under the criteia of a dangerous reaction. And it is still "better" than a serious, potentially life threatening case of the hepatiti b. Immunize!
