Wait around at minimum fourteen times prior to acquiring any other vaccine, such as a flu or shingles vaccine, immediately after you get your COVID-19 vaccine. Or if you get any other vaccine very first, hold out at minimum fourteen times prior to acquiring your COVID-19 vaccine.

If you get a COVID-19 vaccine within fourteen times of one more vaccine, you do not need to be revaccinated with either vaccine. You should really continue to total both of those vaccine series on program.

When we have additional facts on the protection and success of COVID-19 vaccines given at the exact time as other vaccines, CDC may possibly update this suggestion.

If you need a next shot

If you get an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine), you will need 2 shots to get the most protection. You should really get your next shot even if you have aspect outcomes immediately after the very first shot, except a vaccination supplier or your medical doctor tells you not to get it.

If you get the viral vector COVID-19 vaccine, Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen (J&J/Janssen) COVID-19 vaccine, you will only need one shot.

Timing of your next shot

The timing between your very first and next shot relies upon on which vaccine you obtained.

You should get your next shot as near to the advisable 3-7 days or four-months interval as possible. However, your next dose may possibly be given up to 6 months (forty two times) immediately after the very first dose, if important. You should really not get the next dose previously than the advisable interval. ​
