In brief: Possible vaccine

Many times with initial vaccines infants will have fussiness, crying and possible fever.
Usually with subsequent vaccines these symptoms improve. Try consoling your infant, cool compress on the area where he had the vaccine and possible acetaminophen if symptoms do not resolve. If crying still persist then follow up with your baby's health care provider.
