I read somewhere online to wait to get Botox for a couple of weeks after the flu shot. Something about the body is developing antibodies from the flu shot and botox can cancel the vaccine and or not as effective. Can anyone confirm?

Botox after Flu Shot

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Yes, as long as the Botox injection has been eventless and you haven’t experienced any complications (rare), you can go ahead with getting the flu shot. I hope it helps and good luck!
