Hi

I actually came across this today for the first time in MSK clinic, i.e. a patient who was booked in for steroid injection today but is due first Pfizer jab tomorrow. I didn’t inject.

We’ve pragmatically decided as a service to avoid injecting steroid within a month either side of either dose of the vaccine (based mostly on what data is available relating to the time to build up antibodies). What will get tricky however is rebooking patients when you don’t know when the second dose will be.
