You got your shot? YAY YOU! Whether you got one or both, there are some things you should and shouldn't do before and after. Don't take any pain meds like Advil or Tylenol. Believe it or not, the chance is slim, but it can interfere with the immune response. Second, no alcohol, at least for a day or so after. Third, no tats or piercings right after your shot. Fourth, don't sked any other vaccines around the same time. Your tetanus booster can wait. Fifth, (and we like this one) don't push yourself to exercise, especially if you feel run down. Sixth, and maybe most important, HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE. It can affect how well the vaccine works. And lastly, again super important, DON'T LOSE YOUR VACCINE CARD!!!! After you get your second shot, Staples, Office Depot and Office Max will happily laminate it for you for free. Maybe also take a pic of it just to be safe.
