Your doctor may have told you that the COVID-19 vaccine cannot be given with other vaccinations, but that’s NO LONGER TRUE!
Find out why it is safe to take your COVID-19 vaccine with other vaccines at the same time!
Earlier : Avoid COVID-19 Vaccine Within 2 Weeks Of Other Vaccines
The US FDA approved the Pfizer mRNA vaccine for 12- to 15-year old children (with 100% efficacy!) on 10 May 2021.
At that time, the US CDC recommended avoiding taking the COVID-19 vaccine within two weeks of other vaccinations.
WHO also recommended an interval of 14 days between the administration of COVID-19 vaccines, and any other vaccines.
So parents were urged to catch up on their children’s missed vaccinations, in order to receive their COVID-19 vaccination at the earliest opportunity.
Now : It Is Safe To Get COVID-19 Vaccine With Other Vaccines!
On 12 May 2021, Dr. Kate Woodworth of the CDC’s birth defects division, said that the CDC is changing their earlier advice, and that the COVID-19 vaccine can be administered with other vaccines, even on the same day!
At a meeting of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunisation Practices (ACIP), she said,
On 14 May 2021, the US CDC updated their clinical considerations to say that COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines can be administered “without regard to timing“, including on the same day.
The American Academic of Paediatrics also said on the same day that it supports giving childhood vaccines together with the COVID-19 vaccines.
COVID-19 Vaccine + Other Vaccines On The Same Day?
On 2 July 2021, the US CDC updated their clinical considerations to recommend that if a patient is receiving multiple vaccines on the same day, each shot should be administered “in a different injection site“.
They also pointed out that the deltoid muscle in adolescents and adults “can be used for more than one intramuscular injection“.
Their best practice for multiple vaccinations in a day include :
- Label each syringe with the name and the dosage (amount) of the vaccine, lot number, the initials of the preparer, and the exact beyond-use time, if applicable.
- Separate injection sites by 1 inch or more, if possible.
- Administer the COVID-19 vaccines and vaccines that may be more likely to cause a local reaction (e.g., tetanus-toxoid-containing and adjuvanted vaccines) in different limbs, if possible.
