In brief: Viral rash

Chicken pox is not the only viral rash out there.
Many other viruses cause rashes. And the fact that he was vaccinated is a point, but remember that 15% of kids will still get chicken pox despite the vaccine.

In brief: See Your Doctor

Particularly if he has fever go see you doctor now.
It is not likely chickenpox if your child had the vaccine.

In brief: Call pediatrician!

Your son has an rash and fever..
.This sounds a lot like either chicken pox, measles. Has he also had the MMR vaccine? Before you go to your doctor's office, please give them a call to make sure they're ready to keep him apart from other kids who may be there for other reasons. The office may give him a mask to cover his mouth and nose as well, just in case.
