PEP and vaccines
Jan 4, 2006

Dear Doctors: I started PEP 10 days ago. Can I request to get vaccinated against the Flu, Pneumonia and others? Thanks

Response from Dr. Young

There's no particular reason that you couldn't get vaccinated, but if you were my patient, I wouldn't be in any hurry to give you pneumococcal vaccination at this point. Indeed, the only real concern is confusing a possible drug-related side effect with a side effect of the vaccine. BY
