No, it's perfectly fine to take acetaminophen in post vaccination fever etc.
Isn't the article i linked earlier saying something else though?


"that while acetaminophen (paracetamol) prophylaxis significantly reduced fever following routine childhood immunization, it simultaneously blunted the immune response to several vaccine antigens."

"In a recent policy statement WHO advised against administration of prophylactic oral analgesics due to lack of evidence of effectiveness and/or the potential for affecting vaccine response."

Is it ok to have a drink or two after getting vaccinated??
Please don't .Atleast for three days .These are the recommendations of a homoeopathy physician based in Trivandrum,Kerala. I could post the Youtube link if you want to. Only problem is he speaks Malayalam.

Right...WHO suggests not to use PROPHYLACTIC analgesics. You can give paracetamol to a child with high fever and local pain following DPT, there's no harm in it...in fact fluctuations in temperature is very important in antibody development ( but it's a highly debated topic, some real biggies don't believe in it)

I do know it's best to avoid according to all guidelines, but in real life have seen enough people getting drunk within hours of vaccination ( as we could go home after vaccination/ no body really bothers if someone shows up slightly drunk without disturbing others from November to March in the part of world I work) and remain drunk as usual throughout the weekend.
I don't drink, but these guys actually didn't suffer much ( we, the idiots, who don't drink in general got pretty sick after first getting first batch of Moderna....however someone very close, who drank a lot after the 2nd dose to avoid fever etc. got really sick)

My friend's wife is a nursing tutor, lecturer in AIIMS. The day he got the vaccine, she made him take paracetamol in the evening before going to sleep, he didn't even have any fever then!
Next morning he got fever and took paracetamol the whole day. Today he took in the morning, but not after. I think 500mg doses, not 650 though.

The key point i think is high fever, because you can even die or have brain damage if not controlled. But for mild fever which usually anyway goes away on it's own and prophylactically, we're just helping pharma get richer...

That's the problem with modern society...we just can't take physical pain for few hours ( but the same society doesn't care for mental pain..it teaches us to suppress it)
Pain is just some neurotransmitters like anger, anxiety, fear etc.
We doctor tor tors don't really try to treat those issues, but we love to treat physical pain.
I recently got infected with this damn virus and still in isolation, from 8 in the morning till 5/6 in the evening I'm completely alone.
So did an experiment on myself...what kind of fever makes me really sick...my threshold has been 103 degrees Fahrenheit ( may be slightly more, but I am not a very brave person and could not push it beyond that...the dizziness felt like pre syncope and took paracetamol) I can work fine with 101 ( feel slightly sick) have problems concentrating at 102 and dizzy, nauseated at 103.

Ok, so yesterday got vaccinated. Evening had around 200 ml whiskey, fried chicken. Everything was ok till i went to bed. Slept and then at around 2 am woke up with heavy head and fever 101. Couldnt sleep whole night. Body was tired. Then by the morning fever subsided. Heady headedness still there but improving. Has been drinking water at regular intervals. Now seems like by evening i will be okei. Heavy headedness i think got aggravated by alcohol dehydration. It was not a gud idea to drink yesterday evening.

3. Got my 1st dose on 3rd May. Localized arm pain which lasted 2 days. Got high fever the day after taking the shot, took 2 tablets of Dolo 650 at an interval of 6 hours. The following day I had weakness, cold and sore throat. Panicked and consulted our very own @quaratineinthesejeans Recovered the next day.
Got my second shot on 7 June. Just localized arm pain which subsided the 2nd day. No other side effects.
Fully vaccinated now.

Advisable not to drink alcohol for atleast a week. I got covishield on Monday, heavy fever and headache the same night and dolo couldn't be of any help. Tuesday morning was Lil better and got better as the time moved on. Absolutely dine today. Took dolo one on Tuesday morning and night

Not At All a good idea to take alcohol when body is undergoing strong immunity reactions which takes a toll on your internal organs, especially on liver and kidney which also work hard to expel alcohol's side-effects from body.

-> 18-45
-> Covishield
-> Didn't feel any side effects till midnight. It started with pain in my legs along with slight fever and chills. I do not like to pop pills if I can handle it so didn't take Dolo till 6AM. Spent the whole night awake due to body pain. Took Dolo on next day and slept like a log for 18 hours. Fever 101F. Took Dolo every 6 hours post that. The symptoms lasted for 2 days. The worst thing was headache.

Is covishield safe for someone with Ankylosing Spondilitis?

Tl;dr: probably safe, but God knows...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RNA_vaccine#Side_effects_and_risks

RNA vaccines may have side effects for those susceptible to autoimmune disorders. However, since covishield is not RNA based but an adenovirus vector, not sure.

I'm also very interested in the effects of covishield (and covaxin) on those with autoimmune disorders.

This is assuming the AS has an autoimmune pathogenesis.

Some info: https://www.rheumatologyadvisor.com...-diseases-perspectives-concerns-expectations/

"Dr Boekel: Results of previous studies on vaccines against other viruses are reassuring; few adverse events and diseases flares in patients with autoimmune diseases have been described. To what extent these results are applicable to COVID-19 vaccines and how efficacy rates of COVID-19 vaccines in patients with autoimmune diseases compare to efficacy rates in the general population are still unknown. However, especially because the infection rate of COVID-19 is currently high, the benefits of vaccination against COVID-19 outweigh the possible risks."

2. CoviSheild 1st dose.
3. Fever after 12 hours of shot which last up to 36 hours, had to take dolo every 8 hours. Pain on the hand lasted almost 5 days.
4. No. Heard Pfizer isn't much effective against Delta variant.

Pfizer is 88% effective against delta, covishield 60%.

End of the day, its a shield in the form of vaccine. We won't die I guess.

I do hope people understand the meaning of the terms "vaccine efficacy", and the significance (or lack of) that it carries.
Vaccine efficacy is expressed as a proportionate reduction in disease attack rate, AR, between the unvaccinated, ARU, and vaccinated, ARV, groups under the phase III trial.

ARV is just the proportion of individuals within the vaccinated group who got infected within the study period. Similarly, ARU is the proportion of infected within the unvaccinated group.

The ratio of ARV to ARU is called the risk ratio, RR. A lower value of RR clearly indicates better performance of the potential vaccine. When both the vaccinated and unvaccinated groups have, more or less, equal number of individuals, RR is the simple ratio of the number of infected in the vaccine group to that in the placebo group. And, one minus RR, expressed in percentage, is called the “Vaccine Efficacy”.

Clearly, higher the value of vaccine efficacy, the better the performance of the potential vaccine. Thus, a 90% efficacy (ie 10% RR) means that the proportion of infection in the vaccinated group is about one-tenth of the proportion of infection in the placebo group.
Source: https://scroll.in/article/979627/a-...-does-90-efficacy-for-a-covid-19-vaccine-mean

There are a number of variables involved, so please don't go give too much importance to these numbers.
