Subject: Flu Shots and COVID-19
Get Your Flu Shot and COVID-19 Vaccine at the Same Time
As the coming flu season approaches and as we continue to prevent the spread of COVID-19, now is the time to get both shots. Luckily, this year’s flu shot and the COVID-19 vaccine can be administered during the same visit.
Not the Season to Be Sick
With the continued rise of the COVID-19 Delta variant and the unpredictability of a contagious flu season, coming down with flu-like symptoms could mean having the flu, COVID-19, or the possibility of both at the same time. Due to the toll COVID-19 has taken on hospital availability, it’s important to stay healthy and minimize your risk of having a severe case of either virus.
Get Them Together and Get Protected
The CDC has stated that receiving a COVID-19 vaccine and flu shot during the same visit is safe. It’s important to note that each is its own separate shot and each may have minor side effects, but getting them during the same visit will save you time. As school and more in-person occasions begin, and we prepare for the cooler weather and the holiday season that’s ahead, now is the time to schedule your COVID-19 vaccine and flu shot appointment.
