Drinking Alcohol Won’t Affect The Efficacy Of Your COVID-19 Vaccine
If you enjoy having drinks from time to time, you don't have to worry about that affecting your COVID-19 vaccine.
The Canadian media outlet, CTV News, published an article about how drinking alcohol may or may not have an affect on the COVID-19 vaccine's efficacy. In the article, the reporter discovered that there is no reason to think that having a few drinks before or after you get your vaccine will have any effect on its efficacy.
The article also pointed out that there are some scientists hypothesize that people suffering from alcoholism may have immune dysfunction and that could have an effect on the vaccine's efficacy.
But, when they do say that having a few drinks before or after your vaccine, they are citing an email CTV News got from Health Canada, stating "there is no evidence of interference from alcohol intake on vaccination efficacy or safety that would require such a warning."
So, if you are scared of needles and want to have a beer for some of that liquid courage before you get vaccinated, you would be safe doing so. There haven't been any reports of negative effects from mixing alcohol with Pfizer's or Moderna's COVID-19 vaccines.
If you are concerned about your alcohol intake in regards to getting the COVID-19 vaccine, talk to your doctor before you get the shot.
