Coronavirus Vaccine: Stop taking this common over-the-counter medication before getting the COVID vaccination | Eagles Vine

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used to relieve pain, decrease inflammation, and reduce high temperature. It is a common type of anti-inflammatory drug often used by people who are suffering from headaches, painful periods, sprains and strains, colds and flu and arthritis. However, these medications can hinder your body’s immune response system and will reduce the efficacy of the vaccination.

It takes time for our body to build protection after any vaccination. The same goes for the COVID-19 vaccine. Taking medicines like ibuprofen or acetaminophen before getting the shot could make it less effective as they can prevent your body from producing antibodies.
