Thanks. Dr encouraged me to get the vaccine. Said BCG wouldn't be a problem. 

As it turned out, my BCG won't start until a week after the first vaccine shot, and ends the week before the second shot. So it's sandwiched in-between the vaccine shots. The timing couldn't have worked out better!

Stay safe everyone!

I can't answer as to whether one of these would interfere with the other.  BUT knowing how I felt after getting BCG, and knowing that several people I know who have gotten the Covid vaccine have been feverish the next day, I would probably arrange with my urologist to delay the BCG for a week or so.,

Anybody know if BCG treatments interfere with Covid vaccine?  I'm scheduled to get second shot day after a BCG treatment.  I'm asking Dr of course but thought I'd post while I wait for Dr's availability.  Thanks.
