Hi kjoe,


I know you posted this a long time ago, and I am hoping that you asked your doctor or pharmacist (depending on where you got your shot.)


In general, if you do not feel well, it is best to wait.  I am not a medical doctor, however, so you should always check in first.


I hope you are well!
