1. Check that you are eligible for the vaccine.
Different countries have different requirements for administering the vaccine, so make sure you are eligible before signing up.
2. Get tested and find out if you have any pre-existing medical conditions.
Medical conditions such as diabetes, kidney or liver diseases, or heart problems can make it unsafe to receive the vaccine, so getting tested beforehand is essential.
3. Check if there is a history of allergies to either vaccines or their components in your family.
If any family members have had allergies to vaccines or their components, it is important to disclose this information to your healthcare provider.
4. Confirm with your healthcare provider that any medications/supplements being taken will not interact with the vaccine components.
Be sure to provide your healthcare provider with an up-to-date list of all medications and supplements being taken, as well as their dosage.
5. Have an up-to-date list of all medications and supplements being taken readily.
In case of an emergency, having a full list of medications and supplements you are taking will help your healthcare provider to react quickly and provide appropriate treatment.
6. Avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, or consuming recreational drugs at least 24 hours before receiving the vaccine.
These substances can interact with the components of the vaccine, so it is important to avoid them before receiving your vaccination.
7. If you recently had Covid-19, consult with a medical professional on when it’s safe to receive the vaccine again.
Getting the vaccine too soon after having had Covid-19 can be dangerous, so it is important to check with a medical professional first.
8. Undergo screening tests such as blood work prior to receiving the vaccine (if applicable).
If your healthcare provider recommends any additional screening tests, it is important to get them done before receiving the vaccine.
9. Make sure to get plenty of rest before getting vaccinated.
Getting a good night's sleep before receiving the vaccine will help your body to better handle the effects afterward.
10. Wear loose clothing during vaccination appointments.
Wearing loose, comfortable clothing will make it easier to move around during the vaccination appointment. Additionally, this can help reduce any discomfort caused by tight clothes rubbing against the injection site.
