I've just had a vaccination, can I still have a joint injection?

Joint injections reduce the effectiveness of your body's immune system temporarily, in order to reduce inflammation, which in turn can relieve pain from conditions such as arthritis. As vaccinations inject a small dose of a pathogen into your body, allowing your immune system to fight it off, you are not able to have a steroid injection when you have either had a vaccination, or are about to have one. If you require a vaccination for work or travel by a specific date, and also are in need of a steroid injection, please speak to your clinician so that they can advise you on how to proceed.
