What To Eat Before And After Your Vaccine Appointment


Getting your vaccine shot soon? Experts say eating right before and after can help reduce the side effects.

A healthy diet full of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains and protein sources like fish, poultry, and eggs is recommended - while cutting down on red meat and dairy. 

A high-fiber diet can help build the immune system, while a low glycemic index diet will help keep blood sugar levels steady.

Ginger tea can help with stomach ailments, but doctors recommend against "anything drastic like juicing or detox".

Finally, don't be afraid of the side effects! While some people experience symptoms like fever, nausea, or muscle pain, doctors say it's a sign that the vaccine is working and your body is building immunity.

  • Those of you who have been vaccinated already - what kind of side effects did you experience?
