  • Scheduling Vaccines

Can COVID-19 vaccine recipients be given other vaccines at the same visit?

Yes, COVID-19 vaccines and other routine vaccines, including influenza and RSV vaccines, may be coadministered on the same day, given in different syringes and at different anatomical sites. COVID-19 vaccines may also be given at any interval before or after any other vaccination.

Of note, there is no required minimum interval between receiving a dose of any COVID-19 vaccine and an orthopoxvirus vaccine, either Jynneos or ACAM2000 vaccine (e.g., for mpox prevention), regardless of which vaccine is administered first. However, use of Jynneos vaccine should be prioritized over ACAM2000 when co-administering a COVID-19 vaccine and an orthopoxvirus vaccine.

People, particularly adolescent or young adult males, who are recommended to be vaccinated against both mpox and COVID-19 might consider waiting 4 weeks between vaccines. This is because of the observed risk for myocarditis and pericarditis after receipt of ACAM2000 orthopoxvirus vaccine and COVID-19 vaccines, and the hypothetical risk for myocarditis and pericarditis after Jynneos vaccine. However, if a patient’s risk for mpox or severe disease due to COVID-19 is increased, administration of mpox and COVID-19 vaccines should not be delayed.
