User avatar Dear Usman,

Most of the vaccines are very safe.

Side effects to most of the vaccines include minor reactions like low grade fever.

i don't think that high fever is a side effect of the hepatitis b vaccine.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
