    Yes. Those things don't work. I stabbed myself in the arm yesterday with the fingernail on my index finger - blood everywhere. I'm not looking forward to sticking the swab up my hooter.
    Felt like shit on Friday as the day wore on.Sore all over and was in bed by 9.00pm. Fine on sat morning after14 hrs in bed.

    How many, here, getting the jab intend to take account of the suggestion of no alcohol 2-days prior, and 3-weeks after..? Hmmm...

    That's news to me.............do you have a source for this guidance ? I wasn't planning on any abstinence and drinking interesting beer has been very beneficial for my mental health.

    These guidelines were issued by the charity 'Drinkaware' and have been picked up by a number of media outlets who have dropped them into their stories without giving much in the way of context.

    While there is no published data about the specific effects of alcohol on the human body's response to the Covid-19 vaccination, there is some evidence that drinking alcohol, especially regular heavy drinking, could interfere with your body’s ability to build immunity in response to some vaccines.

    Dr Sim continues: “We are very keen to stress how important it is for you to get vaccinated. We do know that, since the onset of the pandemic last year, between one fifth and one third of people have been drinking more than they do usually. So, as far as alcohol is concerned, we advise that you consider not drinking for two days before, and up to two weeks after you've been vaccinated, to try to ensure your immune system is at its best to respond to the vaccine and protect you. But it's really important to know that, even if you do drink, you'll still benefit from having the jab, so please don't turn it down.

    “If you are a regular heavy drinker, the risks to you of becoming seriously ill if you do contract Covid-19 are particularly high, so please keep your appointment for vaccination if you are offered one.

    I think I'll carry on as I have been!

    I think that this is a similar response to the myth that taking alcohol whilst on antibiotics reduces their effectiveness. This supposedly came about because the military services were going out on the town on leave, getting drunk, ending up in a brothel and contracting something unmentionable. Not wanting to take it back to their wives/girlfriends (and not wanting it in general) they were prescribed antibiotics and told not to drink as the effectiveness would be reduced, the idea being that if they were sober, they would be less likely to lose their inhibitions and go back to the brothel. In reality, there are two rarely prescribed types of antibiotic where drinking is not advised: one, because it makes you feel sick; the second because it makes you dizzy, neither a good combo with alcohol.

    With regard to the vaccination, I suspect that the advice not to drink for this period is to stop people getting drunk and breaking social distancing rules until they've built up enough antibodies, which takes three weeks.
