Flu jab and COVID vaccination

Oct 1, 2021

Information released today (1st Oct 2021) about flu jab and COVID vaccination

Having flu and COVID jabs at the same time is safe, according to preprint research from the ComFluCOV study.

The University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust-led study supports giving COVID booster doses alongside the seasonal flu programme.

Researchers concluded that concomitant vaccination did not raise safety concerns, and the immune response to both vaccines was preserved.

Side effects were reported for some combinations but were found to be mainly mild to moderate, including fatigue, apart from one hospitalisation with severe headache related to the trial.
