@silvern12 – I have small fiber peripheral neuropathy and have had the Pfizer booster vaccine along with the high dose flu vaccine. My only reaction was a sore arm and I was a little tired but nothing like the second Pfizer vaccine which I was really tired the day after the shot. If it were me, I would probably listen to my allergist along with taking the normal health precautions traveling. Here's some information that may be helpful for making a decision:

— Are COVID-19 vaccine boosters or extra shots recommended?: https://www.mayoclinic.org/coronavirus-covid-19/vaccine-boosters

Thank you. My allergist said if you have high antibodies the booster could possibly have reverse effect. He said have another antibody test when I get there to confirm I have enough and if numbers go down get it in AZ. My concern was the traveling so soon after booster

That we all have individual "chemistries", this applies to all Rx and OTC products. The vaccines for Covid 19 have been administered to date several billion times. The side effects reported are at a very low rate and amongst the lowest of any vaccine or Rx drug. There are some indications that one might have that should be cleared with your MD before hand. As for the influenza "shot", at best it does not cover all variants of the influenza virus and therefore may not be more than 50% 0r 60% effective. Pneumonia, however, can arise from other circumstances other than influenza.
