In Russia, mass vaccination of the population with the domestic drug "Sputnik V" continues. Despite the proven effectiveness, it may not work to its full potential if you neglect the rules of preparation for vaccination. It is also worth remembering about contraindications.
The head physician of the Leader Medicine medical center, Evgeny Timakov, told RBC that a person who is going to be vaccinated should not have ARVI symptoms and exacerbation of chronic diseases. In addition, you should avoid drinking large amounts of alcohol for three days before and after vaccination. You should also be wary of eating junk food and junk food.
Among the unusual conditions is psychological preparedness, since at the moment of stress, pressure rises and adrenaline is released, which affects the blood vessels. “As a result, a person may feel dizzy and lose consciousness,” Timakov said.
The head physician of LLC "Invitro-Siberia" Andrey Pozdnyakov believes that a day or two before the vaccination it is better to refuse to visit the baths and saunas. At the same time, food intake does not affect the effectiveness of the drug in any way, so there is no point in going hungry for vaccination. As for people prone to allergic reactions, it is better to take antihistamines the day before vaccination and the day after it.
