So many people in our world and apparently nationally as well have been asking one question: Can you drink alcohol after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?
Dr. Anthony Cardillo, an ER specialist and CEO of Mend Urgent Care in Los Angeles, says "there's no ill effects, no danger, of having an alcoholic beverage while you've been vaccinated. It just may put you under the weather a little more than anticipated with the vaccine in and of itself. We do know that alcohol is a toxin that our liver has to metabolize, so it's advisable as you're mounting the immune response to the vaccine, you want your body to be in tip-top shape and not having to be taxed by anything else."
In short? It's advisable to decrease any alcohol consumption just after receiving your shot; however, it's not going to make much of a difference.
