With chatter about our babies having their first round of vaccinations, I wanted to share this important article.
Tylenol After Shots May Hurt Vaccine's Effectiveness - ABC News
Quote:
Giving acetaminophen to babies to prevent fever after routine inoculations reduces the immunity that some common vaccines provide, Czech researchers said.
Quote:
Although the clinical relevance of the findings isn't clear, they said routine administration of fever-reducing drugs at the time of vaccination "should nevertheless no longer be routinely recommended without careful weighing of the expected benefits and risks."
It's hard to resist the Tylenol when your baby is suffering, but I think this is important to follow.

I was surprised when they gave me a sheet outlining proper tylenol dosages for Jamison today, because I had read a bunch of similar research in the past year. No tylenol being given here. Thankfully he is not running a fever.

My Dr. was telling me this at Reeds appointment. She said a little fever helps the vaccine. I haven't read the article yet, it might say that.

yes, fever is a good thing! even when our little ones are sick. it's generally better to allow the fever to stay unless it's preventing the child from sleeping or eating, or is dangerously high.

If my baby developed a truly high fever from a vaccine I would probably give the Tylenol and consider that a bad reaction and not give them that vaccination again.

My Dr said to give it if it gets too high. Just not to if it is in the 99 range!
