Alcohol is a stimulant and should only be drunk in small quantities. This is because regular, heavy alcohol consumption can be addictive and a significant risk factor for disease. The extent to which alcohol influences the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines has not been scientifically investigated. However, there is evidence that alcohol consumption - especially heavy consumption - can impair the body's ability to build immunity. With this in mind, it is generally recommended to adopt a healthy lifestyle and avoid alcoholic beverages in large quantities - not only before and after the Corona vaccination.
