OFFLINE REGISTRATIONS


The lack of internet access in most of India’s backward areas has become a major challenge for the country. As a result, people in these areas may not be able to book slots for the COVID-19 vaccination appointments. 

Therefore, National Health Authority chief RS Sharma has stated that those who are unable to access the internet in rural areas can now call the helpline number 1075 to schedule a vaccine appointment.


PRECAUTIONS 


Before vaccination


  1. Don’t take vaccine on an empty stomach. 
  2. Eat well including leafy vegetables, food rich in antioxidants that help boost immunity.
  3. Stay hydrated.
  4. Get enough sleep at night because it has been scientifically proven that good sleep at night helps improve immunity. 
  5. Avoid excess consumptions of alcohol as it leads to dehydration.
  6. To avoid side effects, avoid taking medicines like pain killers or aspirin.
  7. Wear a sleeveless or short-sleeved cloth to facilitate getting an injection on the arm.
  8. Carry the ID that was used during registration.


After vaccination


  • Stay seated at the vaccination center for 15-30 minutes so that health workers can monitor you if you have any immediate reactions such as vomiting, nausea, or allergic reactions, etc.
  • Stay hydrated and wear light clothes.
  • Be prepared for some minor side effects as the body builds immune protection. It could last for 2 or 3 days.
  • The side effects may be: -
  • Pain and redness at the site of injection.
  • Chills and mild fever.
  • Headache, Joint and muscle pain.
  • Fatigue and body ache.
  • If you notice any of the above symptoms, take paracetamol. Contact your doctor right away if it lasts more than a week.
  • Remember to collect the provisional certificate of vaccine from the center, and schedule an appointment for the second dose of the vaccine.
  • After the second dose, similar symptoms seen after the first dose may occur. If it continues for 1-2 days or more, immediately contact your doctor.
  • The antibodies that develop after the second dose, reach the protective level after 15 days. Hence, don't let up on the security measures.
