MMR vaccine rash after 24 hours?

Hello All, my 12 month old had her vaccinations yesterday. She was very unsettled last night, crying and clutching her thighs but today has been fine. My question is - she's had a rash come up on the back of her neck and slightly down her back. It says on the sheet that they can develop a rash after a number of days but is it likely for 24 hours? I'm concerned whether it's the vaccine or something else? Anyone had this experience 24 hours afterwards?

24 hours would be very unusual - my DS had a rash starting a week after his MMR, which is the more usual time frame.
