Coadministration of Influenza with COVID-19 Vaccines

Can I Get a Flu Shot at the Same Time I Receive a COVID-19 Vaccine Boost Dose?

Coadministration of Influenza with COVID-19 Vaccines:

  • Healthcare Providers should offer influenza and COVID-19 vaccines at the same visit, if eligible.
  • This includes adjuvanted or high-dose influenza vaccines; administer in separate limbs.
  • With both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 circulating, getting both vaccines is important for the prevention of severe disease, hospitalization, and death.
  • Getting both vaccines at the same visit increases the chance that a person will be up to date with their vaccinations.

The above information comes directly from the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services on best vaccine practices. The Center for Disease Control also states that both vaccines may be given together. If there are specific, individual concerns, please contact your healthcare provider.
