Yes. The FDA and CDC approved a mix-and-match approach. When deciding to mix and match, you should consider benefits and risks with each vaccine. Keep in mind that:
- There’s been some evidence of myocarditis among males 18 - 30 years old after a second dose of mRNA vaccine; slightly higher incidence after Moderna compared to Pfizer. There have been no deaths and people fully recover within six months. However, there have been far more, and more serious, cases of myocarditis and other serious inflammatory issues in young people who have contracted COVID-19.
- There have been 47 cases of blood clots with the J&J vaccine, out of 15.3 million doses; with a higher incidence in females aged 30-39.
Yes, teens who are 16 and 17 years old are still considered minors and must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Yes, it’s not necessary to put any time between the flu and COVID-19 vaccines, said Dr. Bryan Alsip, University Health chief medical officer.
Physical distancing is no longer required at any University Health location.
COVID-19 vaccinations may be administered to those with a history of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Vaccination should be deferred until recovery from acute illness (if person had symptoms) and criteria have been met to discontinue isolation. However, there is no minimal interval between infection and vaccination. Evidence suggests that reinfection is uncommon in the 90 days after initial infection, so individuals may defer vaccination until the end of this period, if desired, but it is a not a requirement to receive the vaccine.
Side effects of a COVID-19 vaccination can be fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, tiredness and pain or swelling in the arm where you got your shot. These are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects can be worse after the second dose but, usually resolve in a few days. Consult with your doctor about taking any over-the-counter pain medication such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen to help with these symptoms or if you are still experiencing side effects after a few days.
Even after vaccination it’s important to keep using a mask or face-covering and keeping your distance when around others outside your home, and washing your hands often to help stop the spread of COVID-19 as we continue to learn more about immunity and protection provided by these vaccines.
