I need to have a shingles vaccine, how long should I wait before having this and the COVID-19 vaccine?


The manufacturers’ information for the Pfizer/BioNTech, AstraZeneca and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines is as follows:

“It should not be routine to offer appointments to give this vaccine at the same time as other vaccines. Scheduling should ideally be separated by an interval of at least 7 days to avoid the potential of adverse events.”

Therefore at least 7 days should be allowed between having the shingles vaccine and the COVID-19 vaccine.
