August: National Immunization Awareness Month
Written By: Dr. Tatyana Johnson ~ 9/7/2020

Immunization topic has always been a controversial topic and now it becomes even more sensitive due to COVID. I highly recommend to all my patients before reading information online, asking friends, or simply guessing about immunization (any type) to contact their primary care physician for the appropriate answer. Immunization like medicine has indications and contraindications and is dependent on the persons health condition. Your medical doctor will give you recommendations and explain possible side effects of the vaccination in question.

The most common side effect from vaccinations is elevated temperature, headache, redness, chills, fatigue, and inflammation in the injection area. How can acupuncture help to overcome these symptoms:

  • Decrease the inflammation and pain in injection area
  • Bring your energy up if your feel fatigued
  • Help you sleep through the night
  • Decrease headache
  • Make feel you calm and relaxed

It generally takes two to three treatments to help you to feel better and ease the symptoms. It is best to do acupuncture the same day of immunization or next.

It’s always important to remember that Acupuncture is a great way to support your immune system, but it cannot be a substitute for an immunization.
