Babies are now being drugged with powerful medications to reduce potential pain and fever before being vaccinated with multiple vaccinations. This is said to aid sleep which according to experts maximizes the vaccines response.
Linda Franck and her colleagues at the University of California, San Francisco (1) discovered that by drugging and vaccinating 8 week old babies with multiple vaccinations in the afternoon helps them to sleep better. Linda Franck the leading author of the study which was carried out at the university said:
“Sleep is important after getting shots, because sleep is a sign of a vaccine response, and it’s important to maximize that response.”
Originally the researchers were not studying vaccinations they were studying whether babies slept better if they were given the medication Tylenol before vaccinations or not at all. Apparently it is standard practice to give babies a dose of the drug acetaminophen brand name Tylenol before vaccinations to reduce any increase in temperature supposedly making them more comfortable.
