Since last year, countries across the world have ramped up their COVID-19 vaccination programs in an effort to achieve herd immunity and resist possible mutations.

Before receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, a series of questions might arise, such as what to eat or drink before or post the vaccination that would help increase the immune response. As coffee is known to be one of the most consumed beverages in the world, one of the many questions might revolve around whether it is safe to drink your favourite cup of coffee before or after receiving your COVID-19 vaccine.

Researchers from across the globe have carried out studies on multiple diets, including coffee, aiming to identify potential risk factors associated with their consumption, prior or post COVID-19 vaccination.

So far, there are no contraindication found against the consumption of coffee prior or post vaccination. As a result, it is thus, safe to consume your favourite cup of espresso right after the vaccination.

On the flip side, researchers suggest that drinking one or more cups of coffee per day can help decrease the chances of getting infected with COVID-19 by up to 10%.

Although few people may not experience side effects after the vaccination, it is more than likely to experience usual side effects such as sore arm, headache, pain, fatigue, or in some cases nausea or fever, according to CDC. Usual side-effects, as mentioned earlier, are normal signs that your body is building protection.

Known as one of the healthiest beverages in the world that has multiple health benefits, coffee is a primary source of antioxidants, which according to some health experts, helps offset free radicals. Therefore, enhancing the healing process.
