Tylenol Given With Vaccines May Lower Effectiveness

A study shows that giving Tylenol right before or within 24 hours of a vaccination may lower the effectiveness of the vaccines. This study showed that the lower levels of antibodies remained even after booster doses of the vaccines at 12-15 months. I personally was told my children's doctor to give them tylenol before their appointments when they were getting vaccines.
