Question: 

I had a very minor (1 bump) recent shingles flare up that seems to be gone now. I’m scheduled for the covid-19 vaccine on Monday, Jan 11. Can I get the covid-19 vaccine?

Answer: 

Please speak with your immunization provider on the day of the appointment. In general, if you have a new illness preventing you from your regular activities you should likely wait until you have recovered. This will help to distinguish side effects of the vaccine from worsening of your illness.
