  • You have to wait at least 24 hours after getting the H1N1 vaccine before you can get your allery shot. There are signs posted all over the place the doctor's office.

    This is from the Washington State Department of Health website:
    "Can I get H1N1 nasal spray vaccine at the same time as seasonal nasal spray vaccine?

    No, you should not get the seasonal nasal spray vaccine and the H1N1 nasal spray vaccine at the same time. This is because the nasal spray vaccines might not be as effective if given together. You need to separate all nasal spray vaccines or doses by at least 28 days.

    However, you can get the H1N1 nasal spray at the same time you get a seasonal flu shot, or the H1N1 flu shot at the same time as the seasonal nasal spray vaccine. Talk to your doctor, nurse or clinic about which vaccines are best for you and your family."
