How should I prepare for getting the COVID-19 vaccine?
Check with your national health authorities or a local healthcare provider:
- if the vaccine is available to you;
- when it will be your turn to get the vaccine;
- where and how to get your COVID-19 vaccine; and,
- whether you need to register for it.
It’s not recommended to take over the counter medicines, like ibuprofen or antihistamine immediately before getting vaccinated.
On the day of your vaccination make sure you give yourself enough time to complete all the steps required, including being monitored after vaccination on site for at least 20 minutes.
