Start 2 weeks before and continue for 1 week after vaccination:
1. Clean water: 8–10 glasses a day or ½ body weight in ounces

In the days leading up to your vaccination, fuel your immune system with healthy, organic colorful foods that are nutrient dense. Avoid pro-inflammatory junk foods and sugary foods. Rest when you need to rest.
If able, consider receiving the vaccination the day before you have time off work to have a day to rest.
Day of and day after vaccination:
CTW Vitamin C: 2 caps twice a day
After your vaccination, think muscle, immune and lymphatic system support:
Engage your deltoid! This is the shoulder muscle which received the vaccine. Movement and engagement of the muscle will reduce the tenderness and soreness which can start setting in a few hours later. Example exercises include arm circles, shoulder presses or modified push ups.
Go on a walk! Perform some light cardio and exercise after your vaccination to provide a healthy stimulus for your immune system for optimal response and reduce side effects.
Stimulate your lymphatic system! After the vaccine, you can begin gentle skin brushing of the vaccinated arm. When able, incorporate whole body lymph support with options like whole body dry skin brushing, gentle rebounding, or deep breathing.
