Can I drink alcohol after vaccines?

If you are having Japanese Encephalitis vaccine, you must avoid 'more than your usual' alcohol for 48 hours after each dose. If taking typhoid capsules, alcohol (or food) must not be taken within a few hours of each capsule. However it is OK to have alcohol in the 48 hours after other vaccinations — however, stay under the legal limit!

The myth about "no alcohol after receiving vaccines" may have begun this way... Apparently army recruits used to be given numerous vaccines & then be given a day off to recover...and what did the army recruits do when they had the day off? They went to the pub & got drunk & obnoxious, so the army advised them not to drink any alcohol for 48 hours after their vaccines.
