No there is not much else you can do, just keep and eye on his temp cause I know when my little one had those shots he got a bit of a temp after them. Just try and keep pants off him so it doesn't rub and keep the panadol up to him and he should be fine, but if you think he is having any kind of reaction to the shots (rashes, vomiting, drowsiness or really out of control fevers) then contact your local hospital.

My son had a nurse that would come to our house until he turned 1 and she always told me to rub the area and give him a warm bath (even though it always made me feel horrible because there were always bumps and I thought I was going to hurt him). Also, he probably won't like it, if you get his legs moving the blood will circulate better and the bumps and pain will go away faster.
