Question: 

I had the shingrix vaccine 13 days ago. Is it safe to get the flu and prevnar 13 vaccines together same time tomorrow (13 days after my shingrix vaccine)?

Answer: 

Yes it is safe to receive the Prevnar 13 (PCV 13) and flu shots (in separate syringes) any time after Shingrix®. In fact, it is safe to receive them on the same day as well.

Although there is not a required time period between a dose of Shingrix®  vaccine and a dose of Pneumococcal Conjugate (PCV 13) vaccine, please note: there is a required time period between a dose of Prevnar 13 and Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine (PPV). Please tell your immunizing health care provider if you have had a Prevnar 13 or PPV vaccine in the past and on what date. Find more info re pneumococcal disease here.
