  • Contraindications & Precautions

We usually instruct our patients that they should separate vaccinations and allergy shots by at least 24 hours because if there were a reaction to one or the other, it wouldn’t be possible to determine which was the cause. This becomes problematic during influenza vaccination season. What should we do?

The probability of a serious allergic reaction following any vaccine is extremely low if the person is properly screened. ACIP has not issued a recommendation that desensitization injections and vaccines be separated by any specific time period; consequently, we feel that you should take the opportunity to vaccinate.
