Does paracetamol for vaccination side effects make sense? Well, pain relievers are definitely helpful in suppressing the annoying symptoms of a killed tooth, says Diederik Gommers, an IC doctor and president of the Dutch Society for Intensive Care. But don’t expect this to ultimately reduce your immune response.
Here, however, the old saying “does not help, it does not hurt,” says Gummers. I looked for it on the RIVM website and it really says you can take paracetamol around the time of your vaccination. But you never know if you will experience symptoms, so you can also wait for these symptoms to appear and then take paracetamol. But if you don’t want any complaints at all, you can also do it in advance. I also do this when I go to the dentist when I know a drill is needed.

Gomers cautions that with aspirin it works a little differently: It can have an effect on inflammation, although he doesn’t think your immune system is really working. But I’d say acetaminophen is actually more harmful. “The disadvantage of aspirin is that you can bruise as a result of your vaccine.” Gommers also discuss post-vaccination infections. Fear of the injection and the suspicions surrounding the AstraZeneca vaccine.
