Is it possible to wash after vaccination?

Parents of young children and people who have had to go through vaccination as an adult, are most often interested in whether it is possible to wash after vaccination. There is no unequivocal answer to this question, since some doctors after vaccination are allowed to bathe, while others advise to refrain from water procedures for several days.

Cautions after vaccination

In fact, you can swim on the same day when the vaccine was given, but doctors recommend to wait 2-3 days to avoid the addition of a cold or any infectious disease. Some experts also believe that it is possible not only to wash after vaccination, but also to wet the place where the tuberculin test was taken (Mantoux test). More information about this can be found in our article Is it possible to wet Mantoux?

If it was decided not to wash after vaccination, then on the eve of vaccination, you need to redeem the child. On the day when the vaccination will be given and another 2 days after, you can use wet wipes to keep the body of the child or adult clean.But, in addition, it is possible to wash the body partially, without affecting only the injection site.

Whether it is possible to bathe after vaccination, the doctor who gives permission for vaccination can certainly answer.
