How Long To Wait On Getting A Massage After Each Vaccination

As COVID-19 vaccines are being administered across the country, the number is growing every day. We wanted to start discussing how long client’s should wait before receiving a massage post injection. There are currently 2 doses about a month apart for the vaccine. If there is no allergic reaction initially- people will find to be in some form of discomfort for the next few days. Usually some form of swelling/tenderness/pain at the injection site. 


We highly recommend to wait 3 days post injection (for each one- the first and second dose) before getting a massage. As with any massage as well- we want our clients to be feeling 100% and not ill when getting a massage for their safety and the massage therapist’s safety.
