Can I have the flu vaccine at the same time as my COVID booster?
Yes. Clinical trials have shown that there is no reduction in immune response to either vaccine when they are given at the same time, and it is safe to administer both injections together; they will usually be given in different arms. It is highly recommended to book both your booster and flu vaccine as soon as possible and ahead of the winter months, to protect yourself from the complications and the risk of serious illness from both these viruses. Having COVID and flu at the same time significantly increases the risk of death, so vaccination is especially important this winter.
