(WKBN) – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warns people to stop taking Tylenol or Motrin (NSAIDs) before getting a COVID-19 vaccination.

Sometimes people take painkillers in anticipation of discomfort before an injection, but it is not recommended for the COVID-19 vaccine, According to the CDC.

Researchers say they do not have the information right now about the effect of these drugs on the COVID-19 vaccine-induced antibody response.

In addition, antihistamines are not recommended before the vaccine. Doctors say that antihistamines do not prevent a reaction and can hide a problem.

NSAIDs can be taken after the vaccine has been administered according to the CDC.

The COVID-19 vaccine should also not be taken at the same time as any other vaccine. Health officials say you should wait at least 14 days after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine to get other vaccinations.

COVID-19 and other vaccines can be administered within a shorter period of time in situations where the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks.
