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.
