Covid-19 vaccine and LEEP

Posted by nikki377 @nikki377, May 18 3:47pm

I will have a Loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) in a short time with general anesthesia. Should I delay my first time COVID-19 vaccine ASTRA ZENECA if I am scheduled for procedure?

Hello @nikki377 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I can see you are looking for information on your procedure and the COVID-19 vaccine. Because each person has varying medical backgrounds, it may be best to consult with your doctor to ensure he/she knows of your vaccination appointment and timing with regard to your procedure.

When is your procedure and was there any advice given to you proactively?

Hello,
Thank you for the answer. I'll have a procedure in about two or three weeks and the vaccination I'll get on Monday. I spoke with my doctor and he said that there is no need to delay a vaccination because of the procedure since there is at least 14 days between both. So I hope everything will be fine.
