Any feedback on febrile seizures and how they might be related to vaccines?

Febrile seizures can happen when a fever rises rapidly. They have nothing to do with how high the fever is, only how fast it rises. Therefore, fever lowering drugs such as Tylenol do not help prevent febrile seizures.

 

Febrile seizures can be caused by illness or vaccines, because vaccines can cause fever. Unlike other types of seizures that can be caused by vaccines, febrile seizures are supposedly harmless.
