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 drugging and vaccinating 8 week old babies with multiple vaccinations in the afternoon helps them 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, European generic name paracetamol) before vaccinations to reduce any increase in temperature, supposedly making them more comfortable.
According to the original report published in the journal of Pediatrics(2), 25 of the 70 babies being studied were given a dose of Tylenol before the vaccinations. However, due to fever or discomfort, many of the remaining babies in the study were also given the medication either at the time of vaccination or afterwards.
All of the babies were vaccinated with the following vaccinations: pneumococcal, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DPT), Haemophilus influenzae type b, poliovirus and hepatitis B.
It is hardly surprising that these poor 8 week old babies slept for so long in what is in my opinion an appalling and abusive study.
