Yes You Can Get Flu and Covid Shots


Can you get flu vaccine and a Covid vaccine at the same time? I get asked this question a lot and a reader in Indiana told me his doctor make him wait between injections. Let's not guess. The data show us that Yes. You can get the flu and Covid vaccine at the same time.


A randomized trial was done and published in New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) with 680 people either receiving a 3 week spaced injection or at the same time. There were no safety concerns, no increase in side effects AND the antibody response was the same in both groups.


Conclusion:"These data support the current practice of offering concominant administration of Covid-19 and influenza vaccines, thereby simplifying efforts to prevent these two serious respiratory viral infections."
