Question: 

What are the rules and regulations between timing of TB tests for adults who have received a flu shot? **Please include all variations of the flu vaccine.

Answer: 

Most of the influenza vaccines available for the 2020/21 season are inactivated, so the timing between the TB test and flu vaccine does not matter. FluMist® Quadrivalent nasal spray is a live vaccine. The timing between this specific live vaccine and TB test also does not matter. Normally, a TB test should be done before or on the same day that a live virus vaccine is given. For further questions, please contact your immunization provider.
