... Research studies might also explore whether identifiable features of genetics, immune function, or other factors predispose some children to an adverse vaccine reaction and whether the brain can be protected in such children. For example, animal models point to changes in brain vulnerability as neonates age, so the effect of changes in the timing of immunization might be studied.
