Good morning doctor, pls should a baby of 10weeks take paracetamol after immunization? Thanks.
Dr Aina Johnson


Yes it is okay for a baby to take paracetamol to soothe his pain or calm fever after immunisation. The paracetamol should be given immediately AFTER the immunisation especially if s/he develops a fever.... So give one dose first AFTER the vaccination and if no subsequent fever, you can stop.
