Is it safe to get vaccinations whilst taking antibiotics?


I'm going to Cuba in a few weeks and I need to get vaccinations - pronto. The thing is i'm currently taking strong antibiotics for a cough. Do I need to wait until I've finished my antibiotics?

Thanks so much

In children, it's recommended that they be infection free for 30 days before receiving vaccines. Many doctors ignore that advice, however. My daughter with autism's doctor was one of them.
