The increased COVID-19 cases across the country have been quite alarming for all. We are being extra cautious and staying at home in an attempt to curb the spread. Governments and administrations are taking several initiatives to fight the adversity - vaccination drive being one of them. Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged-off the first phase of the pan-India roll out of the vaccination drive in January, this year (2021). Since then, people in phases are getting vaccinated in different parts of the country. Besides talks about the vaccination, several experts are also sharing precautionary measures one should follow for its effectiveness.
Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, who has inspired many with her 'Swasth Raho Mast Raho' mantra, recently took to her Instagram handle to share three simple precautionary measures to follow before and after taking the vaccine. According to Shilpa, these measures were suggested by her good friend and celebrity nutritionist Luke Coutinho.
"Taking precautions before and after taking the vaccine for Covid-19 is as important as taking the vaccine itself. My dear friend, @luke_coutinho, has put together a very simple and helpful list of the requirements. Please follow it and take very good care of yourselves. Also, remember to mask up, sanitise well, and maintain social distancing along with taking the vaccine," she wrote alongside the post.
Here're 3 Tips To Follow Before And After COVID-19 Vaccination:
1. Stay hydrated:
One must drink adequate amount of fluid to avoid dehydration. As per several experts, dehydration may lead to soreness at the sight of vaccination.
2. Load up on Zinc-rich food:
Shilpa further suggested some foods that are loaded with zinc like flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, walnuts, sesame seeds, eggs, dal, milk, whole grain, chicken, fruits, vegetables et al.
3. Good night sleep:
One must always sleep well the night before vaccination. Science shows that deeper sleep helps make the antibody mechanism more powerful. This makes vaccination yet more effective.
Stay healthy, stay safe!
