Why You Need to Have a Good Night's Sleep Before Your Covid Vaccine
Make sure you get some good rest before you get your shot, sleep experts say. That's because adequate sleep is an important factor in a strong immune system. As COVID-19 vaccines are being distributed, it is of utmost importance that patients continue to prioritize their sleep to maintain optimal health. Getting sufficient, high-quality sleep on a regular basis strengthens your body's immune system and optimizes your response to a vaccine. Several studies have found an association between sleep and vaccination response. A good night's sleep before and after vaccination could be very advantageous."
Tips for getting a good night's sleep:
Establish a bedtime and morning routine. Use the bedroom only for sleeping, not watching TV or reading. Keep your bedroom quiet, dark and a bit cool. Restrict blue light exposure before bed by turning off your TV and other electronic devices 30 minutes to an hour before bedtime. Silence notifications and charge your devices away from your bed so you're not tempted to look at social media or news alerts. Limit alcohol, caffeine and large meals before bedtime. If you're hungry after dinner, limit yourself to small, sugar-free and easily digestible snacks to avoid disrupting sleep.
