Be sure to mention to your primary care doctor, but if the fever was low or you just felt a little warm for awhile, it is probably the vaccine doing what it is meant to do.

He may do best riding in the front seat, depending how big he is and if he still needs a car seat. Sometimes this can help.
There may be some inner ear maneuvers that could help, but you would need to see an Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor to have this investigated.
If none of this works or finds an answer then medication may be the choice. Be sure to see what his primary care doctor recommends.

If you were already feeling bad or like you had a “cold” it is more likely that the fever was a result of the illness.
Of course I can not answer this definitely in this type of forum so also check with your personal family doctor.

Anything infectious, irritating or invasive can cause a severe cough. You do not say how long you have had the cough, this is important information. If you have had the cough for a few weeks with and after being sick with a respiratory illness this would not be that unusual. If the cough persists longer than that or you have had it for awhile it needs to be further evaluated, and NOT with another flu test.
See your primary family doctor for recheck and you might need a Chest X-ray.
If you start or are running a fever or cough up pink mucous or blood you need to be seen by a doctor immediately.
Hope this helps

I have had mild symptoms of the flu continuously for two months. What could be the reason?

You do not say what the symptoms are specifically. The flu does not last for 2 months and perhaps your symptoms started with an illness that was viral and not bacterial. Antibiotics are for treating bacterial infections.
They do NOT treat viral infections.
If you have not followed up with your doctor, please do so. If you have and still are at a loss you can always change doctors.
But doctors typically want their patients to get well. It is their task to investigate, diagnose possible possible problems, test and treat.
