Can I drink alcohol after the vaccine?

You should not drink alcohol for at least 48h after getting the vaccine


What if I am allergic to the vaccine antibody?

If so you should go Tianjin First Hospital and have an allergy test. After doing so they will provide you with a certificate (新冠疫苗接种禁忌证明) explaining why you cannot get the vaccine.



Can I do the vaccine anywhere in Tianjin?

At the moment there is no rule about where and when you should do the vaccine. However note that some hospitals might require you to make an appointment so if you are not going to this location please inform yourself beforehand about the right procedure.
