Question: 

If I take the Shingrix vaccine shortly, will I still be able to take the Covid-19 vaccine when it becomes available? If so, what should be the time interval between the second dose of Shingrix and the Covid vaccine or can they be taken at about the same time?

Answer: 

Shingrix vaccine is an inactivated vaccine so the interval between it and other vaccines does not matter. If you have further questions, please check with your immunization provider.
