Preparing for Your COVID-19 Vaccine

The CDC does not recommend pre-medicating with over the counter medications (such as ibuprofen, aspirin, acetaminophen, antihistamines) before getting your COVID-19 vaccine to alleviate symptoms related to side effects. It is ok to take regularly scheduled medication. It is ok to take these medications after you receive your vaccine if you develop side effects. For more information please visit the CDC website: Preparing for Your COVID-19 Vaccination


If you have questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccine please reach out to your health care provider.
