Your doctor may have told you that the COVID-19 vaccine cannot be given with other vaccinations, but that’s NO LONGER TRUE!
Here is what’s new with COVID-19 vaccines, and why it is safe to take one with your other vaccinations!
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, and scheduled a meeting on 10 June 2021 to discuss making it available to younger children.
At that time, the US CDC recommended avoiding taking the COVID-19 vaccine within two weeks of other vaccinations.
Dr. Lisa Costello – a pediatrician at West Virginia University Medicine Children’s Hospital and a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Committee on State Government Affairs, said,
“We do not yet know whether we will be able to co-administer vaccines — meaning you may have to get the Covid-19 vaccine solo, not with 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 : COVID-19 Vaccine Can Be Administered 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.
