Is it ok to get the pfizer booster vaccine 4 months after 2nd dose. I recall the advice was 6 months initially?

The vaccinators check the dates of your doses and don’t administer vaccines earlier than the recommended intervals.

I meant is it safe to have a booster at 4 months vs 6 months

As far as I’m aware, and based on what the NHS website says, the interval is now 3 months. So if you’re in an eligible group you should be fine.

I mean, it might have just be me, but when I had my second dose at a walk in centre the guidance said my age group should only have one dose. They didn’t bat an eyelid. Just did it. :dontknow:

I mean technically they should follow the guidance (which is as I stated) - and some do, because I know vaccinators/ people involved in the vaccination effort - but obviously, not everyone will stick to the rules as closely. That goes for anything, so I’m not really surprised.

Ive had my 2 doses and planning to get a booster in January new year (I'm getting a different vax this month, TB, and had my last covid jab August, had flu jab like a couple of weeks ago)
I'd say go off experiences you have had in the past with the jabs, if you were fine with the first 2 you will be fine with the booster, if they made you feel really unwell, then give it more thought. Also how bad you have reacted to other vaccines too maybe.
Also, you are not meant to have flu jab and covid jab close together just a reminder

If you decide to leave it a little longer, Ill maybe come back and let you know how my booster went since we had our last jabs similar times

Felt fine after the first 2 jabs. Just a case of whether its too early for booster after 4 months

They changed it based on guidance from scientific advisors (think that’s their name). You’ll be fine, honestly.

As far as I’m aware there’s no specific guidance as to the vaccine intervals, as every country more than likely does it differently.

Got my booster last week and it made me very ill for too days, so make sure you have painkillers to hand
Muscle aches and very tired (however i was on my period so it probably made me worse since i get muscle aches then anyways, so if you have periods i would arrange it for a time you dont have yours)
