Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine? Did you have a flu shot, shingles shot or other vaccine 14 days before or after?

Warning — Do Not Schedule Other Vaccines 14 Days Before or After Your COVID-19 Vaccine:

  • Due to safety concerns, the CDC recommends not taking multiple vaccines within 14 days.
  • Prince William Health District (PWHD) is unable to vaccinate individuals who have received another vaccination, such as flu or shingles, within 14 days before scheduled COVID-19 vaccination.
  • PWHD recommends that patients do not schedule other vaccinations within 14 days after receiving the COVID-19 vaccination.*

* Patients may receive emergency vaccinations (such as rabies and tetanus) within 14 days after COVID-19 vaccination. However, if a patient receives emergency vaccination before COVID-19 vaccination, PWHD will require the patient to wait 14 days.

PWHD COVID-19 Call Center: 703-872-7759, open 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Monday to Sunday) to assist with COVID-19 related questions and questions about vaccine waitlist registration for eligible residents. Waitlist:
