CDPH issues guidance on coadministration of COVID-19 and other vaccines

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has issued guidance on coadministration of COVID-19 vaccines with other vaccines. The guidance states that COVID-19 vaccines and other vaccines may be administered without regard to timing.

This includes simultaneous administration of COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines on the same day, as well as coadministration within 14 days. The benefits of coadministration and timely catch up on vaccinations outweigh any theoretical risk.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) also recommends vaccination for eligible children ages 12 and older with the federally-authorized COVID-19 vaccine and supports coadministration of the COVID-19 vaccine with routine immunizations—particularly for children and teens who are behind on their immunizations.
