You will definitely want the second shot of Pfizer or Moderna; a single does is not effective for the Delta variant of COVID-19.

And I'm not sure how well the J&J protects against Delta, either.

Got a question here about COVID vaccines.

I have a family member, who's in her seventies, who is planning to get the vaccines.

She regularly takes acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofin (Advil) for arthritis pain. I have read quite a few articles where they discourage people taking these OTC anti-inflammatory before taking the vaccine, though these articles only seem to refer to people taking these drugs to stave off any potential side effects. They don't mention people who take them regularly to control pain.

So should my relative not take her daily Tylenol or Advil before she gets the vaccine? How long should she wait before and after getting the vaccines to take her anti-inflammatories?

CDC says keep with your medication schedule.

However, if you take these medications regularly for other reasons, you should keep taking them before you get vaccinated. It is also not recommended to take antihistamines before getting a COVID-19 vaccine to try to prevent allergic reactions.If you have questions about medications that you are taking, talk to your healthcare professional or your vaccination provider.

I asked the person giving me my shot about having taken acetaminophen the night before, and she told me not to worry about it. Apparently that CDC guidance only applies to people taking drugs to avoid aches caused by the vaccine.

Generally speaking you shouldn't premedicate for vaccine reactions before receiving one. You want to let your body go through the process as naturally as possible and let it react to the antigen without any interference. The CDC has to speak in general terms and they don't want to make a broad statement and have people stop taking their medications that are necessary. Since the Tylenol and ibuprofen as just for arthritis pain I would suggest stopping them the day of the vaccine and she can continue them one or two days after she gets her vaccine. Big point though is if this will cause her to hesitate getting the vaccine in any way then it will probably be fine if she decides to take them. If she's on a low dose daily aspirin she should continue taking that.

That was my exact thought process for spending a Sunday on the couch last month with the world's worst headache, but refused to take ibuprofen or Tylenol for. Rather exchange a day of pain and get maximum efficacy of the vaccine in return. I was probably overthinking it, but hey, the headache was gone the next day.
