Get Your Flu and COVID-19 Vaccines

  • November 12, 2023

Stay Healthy – Get Your Flu and COVID-19 Vaccines at Whittier Street Health Center.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends getting a flu vaccine and COVID-19 vaccine at the same visit if you are eligible and the timing for each vaccine is right.

Studies conducted throughout the COVID-19 pandemic supported the safety of getting a flu vaccine and at the same visit. For example, one CDC study showed that people who got a flu vaccine and COVID-19 monovalent vaccine at the same time were slightly more likely to have reactions including fatigue, headache, and muscle ache than people who only got a COVID-19 monovalent vaccine, but those reactions were mostly mild and went away quickly.
