Can I give other vaccines at the same time I give either PCV13, PCV15, PCV20 or PPSV23 to a patient?

Yes, with several exceptions. These are all inactivated vaccines, which means you can give all other recommended vaccines at the same visit (using separate syringes) or at any later time with no waiting period following the vaccination. Here are the exceptions:

  1. You cannot give both PCV and PPSV23 vaccines at the same time.
  2. If the person has functional or anatomic asplenia or HIV infection, observe these rules:
    • If using Menveo (MenACWY-CRM) or MenQuadfi (MenACWY-TT) you may give PCV at the same visit or at any interval before or after each other.
    • If using Menactra (MenACWY-D) vaccine, you should give PCV first and wait 4 weeks after the final dose of PCV before giving Menactra.
