A friend of mine(who is pro vaccine ) had their child get 3 vaccine right after she turned one. The next day the child developed a fever of 102 and a nasty croup cough. I dont know which vaccines were given. Has anyone heard of a connection between vaccines and croup?

It's more likely that they picked up croup at the doctors office while getting the shots, which taxed their immune system.  My completely unvaxed son just got over croup, 3 other kids in his school had it that week.
