• Influenza
  • Administering Vaccines

Should staff at drive-through influenza vaccination clinics encourage drivers to park and wait for 15 minutes after vaccination to make sure they don’t have a syncopal (fainting) episode?

Yes. Syncope may occur following any vaccination. It is prudent for all people to be observed for syncope for at least 15 minutes after any vaccination.
