COVID-19 Vaccination Information:

BEFORE SURGERY:

  • If you have a vaccine scheduled for less than 7 days before your surgery, you may want to reschedule your vaccine.
  • Up to 15 people out of 100 may get a fever after getting a COVID-19 vaccine. If you have a fever on the day of your surgery, your surgery may need to be rescheduled.

AFTER SURGERY:

  • Wait at least 1 week after your surgery before receiving a vaccine. Having a fever can be a sign of infection after surgery.
  • By waiting 1 week after surgery, your health care will be able to determine if the fever is related to an infection and not a vaccine side effect.
