Brief Answer: Yes, it is safe Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query I am so sorry to hear about your battle with breast cancer. I wish you the very best of all possible outcomes. This vaccine is made of dead bacteria. It is safe to take. Tamoxifem is no a contra-indication to taking this vaccine if needed. Adults get vaccinated using Tdap. I hope this addresses your query fully. Thank you so much for patronizing our services and please do feel free to ask for follow up clarifications and information if need be. I wish you the best of health. Dr. Ditah, MD.
