People who have received their corona vaccination should note one thing: alcohol should be taboo around the vaccination appointment.
One expert advises a drastic amount of time.
Dortmund - The vaccinations against the coronavirus * are currently more so-so in Germany: too little vaccine, too many headlines about Astrazeneca and everything is way too slow.
And yet the vaccinations are our ticket to an end to the corona pandemic.
Toast the vaccination with a sparkling wine after the injection would be appropriate - however, experts strongly advise against alcohol.
We should stay dry for 56 days, says a leading doctor, as reported by RUHR24 *.
Doctors and scientists agree: Alcohol has a massive impact on our immune system.
Therefore, Russia's top medical officer Anna Popova even advises to completely refrain from alcohol before and after the corona vaccination * - for a full 56 days.
Other experts are not quite as drastic and only advise avoiding alcohol for the days before and after the vaccination, but the tenor is clear.
The immune system needs all resources to form antibodies against the coronavirus - alcohol can be a hindrance.
