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

Yes. 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. Menactra (MenACWY-D, Sanofi), a discontinued brand of meningococcal ACWY vaccine, was recommended not to be coadministered with pneumococcal vaccines due to evidence of interference with the immune response; however, Menactra is no longer available. All currently available meningococcal vaccines in the United States may be administered without regard to the timing of pneumococcal vaccination.
