What clothes do you have to wear to get vaccinated against Covid-19? Doctors make some recommendations
Photos of people getting vaccinated against Covid-19 flood social networks, but some attract more attention than others. There is an interesting question, which doctors have clarified: What clothes should you wear when you go to get vaccinated against the coronavirus?
A few weeks ago, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis received his Covid-19 vaccine. The vaccination photo, bare chest, He went around the worldBut not for the reasons he would have liked. In fact, he uploaded it to his Instagram account, and soon after he deleted it. French Health Minister Olivier Véran took a similar photo of himself, which you can see above.
It is not that these politicians have done anything wrong, but apparently seeing the chest of a middle-aged man is something extraordinary, or very sexy, according to social networks. But let’s not stray from the topic. The question here is another, more interesting one. These politicians came to be vaccinated in a long-sleeved shirt, and they had no choice but to take it off to reveal his arm. What are the appropriate clothes to go to get vaccinated?
It seems like an inconsequential question, because after all, it doesn’t matter what you wear, it doesn’t take that long to take off a shirt and nobody is going to be scandalized, at least with a man’s chest. But there are technical and sanitary issues that advise against staying bare-chested.
When mass vaccination is carried out, in many cases it will take place in places like stadiums, sports centers, and it has been said that even in the bullring. There will be long lines and a lot of people will be vaccinated very quickly, so try not to waste the doctors’ time. If you are wearing a sweater, a shirt that must be removed, a sweater, etc. you’ll keep the professionals waiting while you take it off.
On the other hand, leaving part of the body in the air is not advisable either in a place with so much traffic of people. Therefore doctors advise not to remove clothes, because it is not necessary and it is safer from a sanitary point of view.
The vaccine is put into the deltoid muscle, one of the largest in the body, covering shoulder and upper arm. Therefore that is the only area that must be uncovered.
As you explain The Verge, health centers ask people who come to get the vaccine to wear a simple short sleeve t-shirt, which can be raised to the shoulder, or even sleeveless t-shirt or blouse. It can also be worn with a sweater on top, which can be removed faster than a shirt.
This way it is not necessary to remove the clothes, the body is not exposed to unnecessary contact in a place of transit, and the process is much faster.
In one of the doses, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis did get it right:
In any case, it must be made clear that this is just a recommendation. It is not an obligation, and you can go to the vaccination with the clothes you want. But the more we make the task easier, the better for everyone …
