Here’s how much you should actually drink after your second COVID-19 vaccine shot

Speaking to the Times, Center for Virus Research at the University of California, Irvine director Ilhem Messaoudi said that for “moderate” drinkers, “there’s no risk of having a drink around the time of your vaccine.” However, Messaoudi said, the thoroughly vaccinated should “be very cognizant of what moderate drinking really means. It’s dangerous to drink large amounts of alcohol because the effects on all biological systems, including the immune system, are pretty severe and they occur pretty quickly after you get out of that moderate zone.”
