How does paracetamol interfere with immune system?

Paracetamol is used to reduce body temperature when it is to high. The high body temperature (fever) is known to be an indication that immune system fights against an infection.In this context I have two related questions: 1. Is high body temperature one of the mechanisms of immune system to suppress an infection or it is just a side effect? 2. If it is just a side effect, does paracetamol remove it by decreasing the intensity with which immune system fights with an infection or not?
