I know they'll ask what medications I'm taking but I just got prescribed the medication today after a visit to the Dentist. So I don't know whether to start taking it or wait until after my vaccination.

Yes you can, so you can take the antibiotics as prescribed by your dentist and still have the vaccine. The antibiotics themselves are not a problem.
However if your problem that you have been prescribed antibiotics for is making you unwell or have a fever, you would have to delay your vaccine until you are recovered.
I am a nurse and work at a vaccine centre and we can’t give it if you are unwell and have a fever.

Start taking it straight away.
Just make sure to tell the doctor/nurse that you’re taking those meds
If the doctor/nurse thinks they’ll interact with the vaccine, they’ll either give you a different brand or tell you to come back when you’re off the meds

Glad to know, thank you!
