  • The side effects of modern vaccines are minor
  • It only hurts for a second or two (if you allow us to 'warm' up the injection area)
  • Its best not to watch if you are anxious; request to lie down if you are tense
  • You do not need to go without food before you have vaccinations or blood tests
  • You can do all your usual activities after the immunisations
  • You can drive, work, gym; but best to take it easy on the day of the jabs
  • Do drink lots of water after vaccinations as side effects are minimised if you are well hydrated
  • Avoid or reduce alcohol consumption 
  • If you don’t feel well after the 'jabs', then take it easy 
  • Local reactions at the site of the injection are a positive indication that your immune system is responding to the vaccine.
