Staying Hydrated Before & After Your COVID-19 Vaccine
Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is a great way to protect yourself from this potentially deadly disease. But you should take a few steps to mitigate its side effects, particularly if you’re getting right back to your day-to-day routine after your shot. In this blog from Hydrate IV Bar, we’ll discuss how you can stay comfortable by staying hydrated before and after the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Side Effects Of The COVID-19 Vaccine
Most people who get the COVID-19 vaccine experience a reaction similar to a mild fever. Depending on the person, this could last from 0-24 hours, and usually involves chills, sweating, headache, and other similar feverish symptoms. This can happen at the first, second, or both shots, depending on the vaccine you get.
While these side effects go away quickly, they can be unpleasant. And hydrating before and after your COVID-19 vaccine is one of the best ways to mitigate them and ensure you feel better more quickly.
Hydrating Before & After Your Vaccine Appointment
Before your vaccine appointment, we recommend that you drink plenty of water, or a sports drink like Gatorade or Powerade. Eating a light meal of fresh fruits and vegetables or having a smoothie will help you get more water into your system and stay hydrated.
IV hydration post-COVID vaccine at Hydrate IV Bar is a great option after your vaccine has been administered. Just come to one of our facilities in Colorado or Arizona, and you can get the IV hydration you need to help mitigate any potential side effects of the vaccine.
IV hydration delivers the hydration you need directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your GI (gastrointestinal) tract. This provides powerful relief, and may help you feel better if you begin to experience a minor fever after your COVID-19 vaccine.
Read a Real-Life Testimonial from One of Our Clients:
“Before my second covid vaccine, I came into Hydrate for an Immunity IV with Glutathione to boost my immune system- added on a Vitamin D injection while I was there.
I had heard from numerous friends that the symptoms from the covid vaccine would put me down for 24 hours or more. As a working mom of 2 – I knew I couldn’t risk feeling bad for a whole day or more!
I received my IV about 2 hours prior to my 2nd vaccine dose. I was prepared to feel terrible as my friends had told me. I was shocked when I woke up that next morning and didn’t even have a headache! I truly believe the Vitamins and IV Fluids I received at Hydrate prevented all symptoms I could have had. So very thankful that it was an option for me and now a true believer in IV vitamins and hydration! “- Megan, Hydrate Client
