Always use your brain and common sense which could help you ALWAYS when ever you travel !

A beer or two shouldnt make a huge difference but l wouldnt go on the lash! How were you feeling directly after the jabs - sometimes they make you feel of colour or a bit sickly.

WELL - not wanting to go against a medical professionals advice or tell you to do otherwise! I should think a socialable drink wont kill you - just dont go binge drinking! Its nearly ten pm so you wont be going too mad l should think!

Hey Dar - I'm sure you have made your decision already, but it is fine to have a pint or two after your vaccinations. As Purdy said, just don't go overboard. You will probably feel as though you are coming down with the flu come the morning. This is rather common when someone has received multiple vaccinations at one time. You may feel no after effects at all though most people have some type of response. Enjoy and keep the alcohol consumption to an acceptable minimum for a couple of days.

Uh-oh. I have never kept my alcohol consumption to an acceptable minimum (at least, what most people would consider acceptable - it's acceptable to me). I wonder if this means that I am likely to get tetanus or polio or something because I drank too much after my vacinations...
