Is It Safe To Have Ct With Contrast Within Few Days Of Finishing Zpack?

I recently had a chest X-ray which showed something on my left lung, my Dr. informed me that I now need to have a CT with contrast done so that they can get a better look at the spot I am presently taking a zpack for an upper respiratory infection and my question is, is it safe to receive the contrast just a few days after finishing the zpack?
