      Interpretive Summary for September 16, 2022

      Make Mine a Double

      Both COVID-19 and flu vaccines have been shown to reduce illness, hospitalizations, and deaths. As flu season approaches and COVID-19 vaccine recommendations are updated, you might be wondering if you need to wait after getting a flu vaccine before getting a COVID-19 vaccine? The answer is “no!” You can get them both at the same time if you are eligible and the timing works. Experience with other vaccines has shown that immune response (the way our bodies develop protection) and possible side effects are generally the same whether you get one vaccine at a time or two.

      Even though both vaccines can be given at the same visit, you should follow the recommended schedule for either vaccine: If you haven’t gotten your currently recommended doses of COVID-19 vaccine, get them as soon as you can, and ideally get a flu vaccine by the end of October. The same holds true for kids. If your child is eligible, they can get both vaccines at the same time, but don’t delay either vaccination in order to get them both at the same visit.

      A recent CDC study suggests people who received a flu vaccine and an mRNA COVID-19 booster at the same time were slightly more likely (8% to 11%) to report reactions like fatigue, headache, and muscle ache than people who received only the COVID-19 booster, but these reactions were mostly mild and resolved quickly. If you have concerns about getting both vaccines at the same time, speak with your healthcare provider.
