I had them within two weeks of each-other dd. And the flu shot the next week. Still alive.. for now.
Now the dust has settled so many friends are coming out with 'oh yeah I had it in June'. They're all under 40 so would be from when they stopped doing the small pox vaccine I guess.
Ah thank you. Yep all fine now - I actually had about two hours of feeling like the flu was coming on, took some paracetamol and went to bed, and woke up feeling fine. I asked the covid nurse if it was ok, and she’d never heard of the monkey pox vaccine so that’s encouraging.
Can you provide a reference source for this guidance on interval between the 2 vaccines?
I work with healthcare teams that provide both and provide them to the local queer community and have not seen this guidance.
Any info such as this needs to be well referenced so that we all work to the best info for our own health and the health of our communities.
The CDC lists it here:
“Those who previously received orthopoxvirus vaccination (either JYNNEOS or ACAM2000), particularly adolescent or young adult males, might consider waiting 4 weeks before receiving a COVID-19 vaccine (i.e. Moderna, Novavax, or Pfizer-BioNTech) because of the observed risk for myocarditis and pericarditis after receipt of ACAM2000 orthopoxvirus vaccine and COVID-19 vaccines (i.e. Moderna, Novavax, or Pfizer-BioNTech) and the unknown risk for myocarditis and pericarditis after JYNNEOS administration.”
I haven’t found any UK guidance on this so looks like it’s out of abundance of caution by the CDC more than anything as the risk is not fully known yet.
Got my second jab this morning. Waking up for a 9am appointment on a Sunday isn’t the tea but whatever. I expect my arm to ache for a few weeks and they said I can’t get my flu jab for at least 4 weeks after this jab so I’ll have to get that in January now methinks.
Oh great, I had my second dose and my flu jab days apart and no one warned me about it? Been okay so far though
Ooo it’s great to hear you’re still feeling okay. I don’t think they would have told me if I didn’t ask but hopefully you’ll be okay. I’d say take it easy just in case.
