Are there any risks associated with COVID-19 vaccination if you have recently received another vaccine?


You can get vaccinated against COVID-19 even if you have recently received another vaccine. Initially, it was recommended not to give COVID-19 vaccines together with, or shortly before or after another vaccine. This was done out of precaution. In the meantime, scientists have gathered much more data on the safety of the vaccines used, and we know that COVID-19 vaccines can be administered simultaneously or at any interval with other vaccines such as influenza vaccine, tetanus vaccine, etc. In practice, it is recommended that the different vaccines are administered in different arms.
