Look for complete protein in a natural food store, such as pea protein. This form is readily absorbed. Add a scoop or two to your smoothies. Otherwise eat a diet rich in veggies and fruits, whole grains and lean protein, including legumes and fish. Limit alcohol which can deprive the body of absorbing nutrients.

This is a good question! Fever is the body’s natural response when it encounters an invader. This means your immune system kicked into gear. It is not uncommon for you to not experience a fever previously, because you may have other underlying invaders, such as the virus that causes the common cold, that your immune system is fighting, at the same time you got your vaccine. If your fever remains after a few days, or goes above 102 degrees Fahrenheit then seek medical attention. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids and rest when you can.
