After vaccination against coronavirus, Russians need to follow four main rules in order to avoid side effects or unpleasant consequences of vaccination, Vladislav Mohamed Ali, medical director of the SberZdorovye service, told Lente.ru.
“There are not so many activities or actions that are contraindicated after vaccination, and they are quite simple. After vaccination, you must not comb the injection site so as not to cause local reactions. Another recommendation is not to raise the temperature, that is, not to go to the bathhouse or sauna for the first day, so as not to provoke side effects, ”he said.
In addition, it is advisable not to play sports on the first day or expose the body to other physical exertion.
Fourth, it is recommended not to drink alcohol.
“There is a version that this, in simple terms, slows down the formation of immunity from coronavirus,” – said the interlocutor of Lenta.ru.
In conclusion, Mohamed Ali advised those who decide to get vaccinated to rest after vaccination.
“If you followed all the recommendations described above, and you have a fever, then this is a normal reaction of the body to the vaccine, especially to the” live “one. Therefore, in the first 24 hours it is better not to be active and, if possible, take a day off, ”he said.
