My child is due for other vaccines, should they wait or can they get it at the same time as the COVID-19 vaccine?
It is best not to get the COVID-19 vaccine within two weeks of other vaccines, including routine childhood immunizations for tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap), HPV, hepatitis B or meningococcal disease.
Pediatricians recommend spacing the COVID-19 vaccines from other routine immunizations by at least two weeks if possible. It is not likely that different vaccines will interfere with each other, but a gap will help to ensure maximum effectiveness.
It is also important to keep up with other routine immunizations, as they prevent other serious diseases too.
