Our ped said it's not OK; any fever/discomfort/whatever at any time due to the vaccine is part of the immune response and shouldn't be treated with medication unless it gets to the point that it could be dangerous, which is rare.


OP - On another side note I don't mean to sound like a know-it-all, just thought I'd mention it.

I've heard this as well. There is also evidence to suggest that in those that are more sensitive to vaccines, Tylenol can exacerbate an adverse reaction.
