- You can take over-the-counter medicine such as ibuprofen, paracetamol, aspirin or antihistamines to relieve post-vaccination side-effects if you have no other medical reasons that prevent you from taking these medications normally. (Do not take these medications before vaccination to prevent side-effects).
- To reduce pain and discomfort on the arm where you got the shot, apply a clean, cool, wet washcloth over the area. Use or exercise the arm.
- To reduce discomfort from fever, drink plenty of fluids and dress lightly.
