In brief: Tylenol (acetaminophen)
You can use tylenol, or the generic acetaminophen, for fever for this situation.
Motrin is not to be used under 6 months of age.

In brief: Acetaminophen.
You may give Acetaminophen drops in the appropriate dose to prevent fever and irritability.
For swelling or soreness, put a wet, warm washcloth on the area of the shots as often and as long as needed to provide comfort. Call your child's healthcare provider if your child has a rash or any reaction to the shots other than fever and mild irritability, or if your child has a fever that lasts more than 36 hours.
