Medications for Fever

Medications for Fever

Fever is not harmful. Only treat a fever to make your child comfortable. Most fevers will respond to either acetaminophen or ibuprofen, given once every 6 hours or up to 4 times daily.

For high fevers that do not respond to a single medicine, you can alternate acetaminophen and ibuprofen at 3-hour intervals (Give each single medicine only once every 6 hours.)

Childhood Immunizations

Childhood Immunizations

The vaccines that protect your children against serious, often life-threatening diseases are sometimes associated with annoying side effects such as soreness at the injection site or fever. Uncommonly, they may be associated with more severe side effects.  The risk of the vaccine is always far less than the risk of the disease against which it protects.  Most vaccines are required by state law in order for a child to attend school. For details on each vaccine, please see the information on the bottom of this page.
