For medical concerns that require specific kinds of treatment, it is always wise to seek your doctor. We cover suggestions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help you gain the most of the vaccine in the best possible ways.
Don’t take your non-prescription medicines before the shot
If what you are trying to prevent is the undesirable impact of the Covid-19 vaccine by picking up aspirin, ibuprofen, and many others before the jab, you really should not. The CDC recommends that the after-effect from consuming these over-the-counter medications may interrupt the vaccine’s ability to function properly. What if the moment you read this, you already took one? It is really something that you should not stress out, given the information above, you will be alright. However, please consider this recommendation carefully. If anything, you can have the anti-inflammatories later on after the shot taking effect to mitigate the uneasiness and sore you could be experiencing.
Can I still hit the bottle?
CDC does not provide any information regarding the reasons you cannot booze up on alcohol the night before and after the shot. Nonetheless, numerous health experts suggest that you should maintain your body in good shape in order for the vaccine to work effectively. Refraining from a tipple at a minimum of two weeks is thus recommended. A notion stated by WHO also emphasizes that alcohol consumption including heavy ones may lower your body immunity. The developer of the Sputnik vaccine also advises abstinence to be continued after the vaccination for at least 3 days.
Should I reschedule my tattoo appointment?
Provided limited insight in connection with the topic, many tattoo parlors do not have a solid response to the question above. Regardless, Prof. Michael Chang of McGovern Medical School, Houston claims that there is no specific time recommendation in the middle of vaccination and tattoo appointment. Anyhow, a fact for sure is that contraindications owing to tattooing previously or post-vaccination do not relate to how the vaccine would work.
The apprehension arises from the unwanted impacts for both vaccines and tattoos especially in the arm sites that may lead to severe redness and soreness. In reference to this, an internal-medicine certified physician in New York, Sunitha Posina explains how it can be very troubling when the tattooed areas are to be swollen and a proclivity of one to get a low-intensity fever when your tattoo and vaccine appointment is around the exact time. It will be difficult to decide the cause. It is whether the reactions developed from the needles of the vaccine or else of the tattoo. This is the situation we are trying to prevent.
Prioritize Covid-19 Shots
Do not book any other vaccine appointments unless it is necessary. The CDC recommends that the administering of the vaccine Covid-19 alone should be at an interval of two weeks with the other vaccine. In the case of an emergency, for instance, a shot of tetanus, you really should not abort it.
Cancel your exercise routine
Although working out on your body can inspire your immunity and boost it up. It is a must that you should not push it when you are not feeling it. Instead, be mindful of your physical state and opt for a deep rest to prepare yourself even better.
Hydration is of utmost importance too
