Update: You Need to Know — COVID-19 Vaccine and 14-Day Rule 

Are you getting a COVID-19 vaccine?  Did you have a flu shot, shingles shot, or another vaccine 14-days before or after?

  Warning — Do Not Schedule other vaccines 14 Days Before or  After Your COVID-19 Vaccine:   


  • Due to safety concerns, the CDC recommends not taking multiple vaccines within 14 days.
  • PWHD is unable to vaccinate individuals who have received another vaccination, such as flu or shingles, within 14 days before scheduled COVID-19 vaccination.
  • PWHD recommends that patients do not schedule other vaccinations  within 14 days after receiving the       COVID-19 vaccination. *

*Patients may receive emergency vaccinations (such as rabies and tetanus) within 14 days after COVID-19 vaccination.  However, if a patient receives emergency vaccination before COVID-19 vaccination, PWHD will require the patient to wait 14 days.

PWHD COVID-19 Call Center: 703-872-7759, open 9am-4:30pm (Monday-Sunday) to assist with COVID-19 related questions and questions about vaccine waitlist registration for eligible residents.  Waitlist Http://
