In brief: Hard to say; get see

A fever of 101.
2 deg F is significant & not low-grade (100.4 deg F) so a bacterial infection is definitely possible. Detecting it, tho, is tricky as u will require blood tests & timed blood cultures when ur temp goes that high. Pneumonia just means infx of lungs, not specified as to bacteria or viral. U can get secondary infections of bacteria after lungs weakened by flu virus. See your doctor soon.
