My 9 year old child is sick with a fever, and he vomited once yesterday afternoon. Should we wait or see a doctor?

In brief: Depends

It could be a virus.
Could be strep throat. Could be what is passing around school. If you are concerned see your doctor. If he can drink and keep fluids down and you are not worried and are comfortable waiting then do so. Moms have that sixth sense and know when their child needs to see the doctor.
