Can you get the COVID vaccine if you take PrEP for HIV?

Health care workers answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.

Jason Villareal, MSN, RN, NP-BC explains that if you’re taking PrEP for HIV prevention, you can get a COVID vaccine.

I’m on PrEP so, and I got my vaccine. So, no it’s not, doesn’t have any effect that we know of on PrEP or on HIV meds. So again, I wouldn’t recommend something unless I would do it. So yeah, it’s no problem with PrEP.
