Can You Have Alcohol After the COVID-19 Vaccine?

The short answer is that it depends on how much you drink. There is no evidence that having a drink or two can render any of the current COVID-19 vaccines less effective. Some studies have even found that over the longer term, small or moderate amounts of alcohol might actually benefit the immune system by reducing inflammation.
Heavy alcohol consumption can suppress the immune system and potentially interfere with your vaccine response, experts say. Since it can take weeks after a COVID-19 shot for the body to generate protective levels of antibodies against the novel coronavirus, anything that interferes with the immune response would be cause for concern.
Moderate drinking is generally defined as no more than two drinks a day for men and a maximum of one drink a day for women, whereas heavy drinking is defined as four or more drinks on any day for men and three or more drinks for women.
Keep in mind that one “standard” drink is considered five ounces of wine, 1.5 ounces of distilled spirits, or 12 ounces of beer. Stick to these limits.
