Quick Answer: Can Tdap and pneumococcal vaccines be given together?

Can 2 vaccines be given together?

If you are giving more than one vaccine, do not use the same syringe and do not use the same arm or leg for more than one injection. Do not give more than one dose of the same vaccine to a woman or child in one session. Give doses of the same vaccine at the correct intervals.

Can Pneumovax be given with other vaccines?

Do not mix PNEUMOVAX 23 with other vaccines in the same syringe or vial. Use a separate sterile syringe and needle for each individual patient to prevent transmission of infectious agents from one person to another.

How long can you wait between vaccines?

You should get your second shot as close to the recommended 3-week or 4-week interval as possible. However, your second dose may be given up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose, if necessary.

How many vaccines can you give at once?

There is no upper limit for the number of vaccines that can be administered during one visit. ACIP and AAP consistently recommend that all needed vaccines be administered during an office visit. Vaccination should not be deferred because multiple vaccines are needed.

When to Get the Vaccine

If it’s flu season, you can even get a pneumonia vaccine at the same time that you get a flu vaccine, as long as you receive each shot in a different arm.

Should you get Both Prevnar 13 and Pneumovax 23?

ACIP recommends that both PCV13 and PPSV23 be given in series to adults aged ≥65 years. A dose of PCV13 should be given first followed by a dose of PPSV23 at least 1 year later to immunocompetent adults aged ≥65 years. The two vaccines should not be co-administered.

What happens if you get pneumonia vaccine twice?

Getting it twice is not harmful. It’s a well-tolerated vaccine, with generally far fewer side effects than the Moderna vaccine you just took.

Can I get my second vaccine at a different location?

No, you are not required to get your second dose at the same location that you received your first dose. However, it’s encouraged that you receive both doses at the same location so your provider can ensure you’re getting the same vaccine type at the correct time.
