Talk to your GP. Understand how the vaccine works.
In case you have allergies to any medication, or drugs, it is important to get an all-clear from your family doctor or medical practitioner.
Your doctor may order some routine examinations. A complete blood count (CBC), C-reactive protein (CRP), or Immunoglobulin-E (IgE) are likely to be advised before the doctors says you can go ahead with the vaccination.
Eat a light meal before leaving home. You may not be able to have anything immediately after, at least for a few minutes.
Relax. Its like any other vaccination drive. Stay positive and cautious. If you are feeling anxious, a health counsellor can help you cope.
Wear light, comfortable clothes. In all probability, you will be sitting while being given the shot in your arm.
Go to the vaccination centre with a proper mask covering your mouth and nose, and stay at least six feet away from others until it is your turn to take the shot.
Do not hide any ailments/conditions or allergies from your certifying doctor who gives you the go-ahead for the vaccination.
Do not consume alcohol or any substance before being vaccinated, nor during and after.
While at the vaccination centre, don’t touch items or other patients around the place. Basically, maintain regular COVID-19-appropriate protocol.
