As the coronavirus vaccine drive is expected to step up in the coming weeks, it is of utmost importance for people to prioritize their sleep to maintain optimal health. The researchers recommended that those planning to get the vaccine must get adequate sleep at night and engage in vigorous exercise at least 24-hour prior to it.
This is not the only study that has linked sleep and level of physical activity with the vaccination response. Another study published in the International Journal of Behavioral Medicine found that flu vaccines are effective in people who get a sufficient amount of sleep two nights before receiving the shot. A similar connection was found in case of vaccines for hepatitis A and hepatitis B.
