CAN I GET THE CORONAVIRUS VACCINE WHILE PERMANENT (REGL)?
The menstrual period may be more sensitive and painful for some women, but this does not constitute an obstacle to vaccination. All vaccinations can be done while menstruating. These vaccines include tetanus, hepatitis, meningitis, HPV and corona vaccine. For the most part, all human vaccines, except in rare cases, have simple and temporary side effects. Complaints can be controlled with a simple antipyretic and pain reliever. If the person is already experiencing the stress and fear of being vaccinated, they may be affected more psychologically. However, the person may prefer to delay the vaccination because he or she “does not feel well”.
