Frequently Asked Questions:
Can Covid-19 vaccines be administered along with other vaccines?
According to CDC, “In general, COVID-19 vaccines may be administered without regard to timing of other vaccines. This includes simultaneous administration of COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines on the same day.”
If I am sick, can I receive the Covid-19 vaccine?
According to CDC, “As with other vaccines, you can vaccinate patients with a mild illness. A moderate or severe illness is a precaution to receiving any currently FDA-authorized or FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine. It is not considered a contraindication. Generally, vaccination should be delayed until the acute illness has improved. However, if you and your patient believe the potential benefits of vaccination outweigh the potential risks, they may receive COVID-19 vaccine.
If I currently have Covid-19 infection or have had it in the past, can I receive the booster and how long do I have to wait to receive?
“CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccination for all people ages 6 months and older, including people with a history of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Prior infection: Offer vaccination regardless of history of prior symptomatic or asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection, including to people with prolonged post-COVID-19 symptoms and people who experienced SARS-CoV-2 infection (symptomatic or asymptomatic) after vaccination. People who recently had SARS-CoV-2 infection may consider delaying their primary or booster COVID-19 vaccine dose by 3 months from symptom onset or positive test (if infection was asymptomatic).
Current infection: Defer vaccination of people with known current SARS-CoV-2 infection until the person has recovered from acute illness (if the person has symptoms) and until criteria have been met for them to discontinue isolation.
Do I have to use the same brand for booster doses?
According to CDC, “For booster vaccination, age-appropriate mRNA vaccines are recommended. Any age-appropriate mRNA vaccine can be used if a booster dose is FDA-approved or FDA-authorized for use in a specified population: it can be the same mRNA vaccine as the primary series (homologous booster dose) or a different mRNA vaccine (heterologous booster dose).”
