In brief: Coincidence

Stuffy nose in newborns is a common transitional condition.
Saline nose drops or humidifier should be of help.

In brief: More likely irritant

Having a smoker around, anyone wearing perfume or any fragrence or dust exposure in babies environment is much more likely to cause nasal stuffiness than any vaccine.
Doing a lifestyle audit, where u eliminate such exposures is imperative when a newborn is around. They don't mouth breathe as easily to bypass the congestion so you really must work to exclude irritants from their environment.
