Vaccines can now be used by people above 18 years of age to prevent coronavirus infection. There is a question arising in the mind of women about vaccination, whether the vaccine will affect the periods. The central government has responded to this concern of women through a post. The post claimed that women should not take the vaccine of Covid-19 five days before menstruation or five days after the period because they receive very little immunity at that time.
Can a vaccine affect a woman’s periods?
According to the message on social media, if women apply the vaccine of Covid-19 during the period, then the vaccine can be badly affected. Apart from this, it is also being said that the vaccine reduces immunity in the initial days and later develops a strong immunity to fight the coronavirus.
The Press Information Bureau said in a tweet that a fake post circulating on social media claims that women should not get the Covid-19 vaccine five days before or five days before their menstruation. Do not get into rumors. PIB said in a ‘Fact Check’ alert that all people above 18 years of age should get vaccinated after May 1. The registration process starts on April 28 on the CoWIN platform.
A lot of patients messaging me asking if it’s safe / effective to take the vaccine during their period. Some silly WhatsApp rumor has spooked everyone.
Earlier this week, the central government announced the launch of the third phase of the vaccination campaign. Registration for every person above 18 years of age starts from April 28. The process can be completed on the Kovin platform and the Arogya Setu app. On April 19, the central government had said that every person above 18 years of age can get the Covid-19 vaccine from May 1.
