Administration of CSL's 2010 Southern Hemisphere influenza vaccine has been associated with increased postmarketing reports of high fever and febrile seizures

Previous studies have shown that these vaccines administered to children 12-23 months of age are associated with an increased risk of febrile seizures
one to two weeks following immunization.
An association of acute neural disease with HCoV infection has been clearly demonstrated by the detection of HCoV-OC43 in the cerebrospinal fluid of a child presumed to have acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, and the frequent association between HCoV-HKU1 infection and the development of febrile seizures
seems to lead to the same conclusion.
Recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics addressed management of febrile seizures
