Flu Vaccine Q&A – COVID-19 Booster & Flu Shots Simultaneously

Flu Vaccine Q&A
Posted on October 13, 2021

As an organization that has been discussing and advocating for flu vaccines for 17 years and counting, we’ve heard every question imaginable.  With COVID-19 vaccines on people’s minds, we want to help you get the answers you need to safely get vaccinated. 

Is it safe to get a COVID-19 vaccine at the same time as the annual flu vaccine?
Yes! It is actually common for people to get multiple vaccines at one visit. The CDC and American Academy of Pediatrics both state that it’s safe to get the flu and COVID-19 vaccines at the same time. 

What about a COVID-19 booster shot and flu vaccine at the same time?
Some people may be eligible for a 3rd dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine during the peak window for flu vaccination. Based on the above CDC guidelines, it is safe to get your 3rd dose at the same time as you get your annual flu vaccine. In fact, pharmacies often encourage you to get both at the same time to maximize your time and protection against vaccine-preventable diseases!
